Oregon Workers’ Compensation Report Out

Every two years the OR Department of Consumer and Business Services puts out a report of the workers’ compensation rates of the 50 states. It does a pretty good job of outlining where everyone is. It appears on its face to be fair.

Check out your state.

Montana has the highest rates at 163% of the median.

North Dakota has the lowest rates at 50% of the median.

My state of Maine is at number eight, down from five in 2008.

Look at Appendix 4 to see a direct comparison of the state rates for different employment classes. Class 8810, Clerical shows rates in MT at $0.75 and $0.13 in MA and DC!

The sales codes range from $1.04 to $.15.
