Who Decides How Much I Have To Pay For Industrial Insurance?

The Department of Labor and Industries sets the rate, but what you pay is based on the accident and illness rates in your industry­specific job and your company's claims history. Rates vary widely, depending on how risky a job is. For example, the rate for a few select jobs in the logging industry exceeds $10 per hour. For less risky clerical workers, the rate is as low as 11 cents for every hour worked. Rates within a particular industry will vary depending on the frequency and cost of workers' compensation claims filed by a particular company.
