New IRMI Manual Responds To California Workers Compensation Crisis

Dallas, TX, September 19, 2003International Risk Management Institute, Inc. (IRMI) is pleased to announce the release of its new reference, Levine on California Workers Compensation Premium and Insurance, A Comprehensive Practical and Legal Guide to Issues, Strategies, and Disputes. It is designed to help insurance buyers, agents and brokers, underwriters, and premium auditors work more effectively in the difficult California workers compensation insurance marketplace. This new IRMI reference manual is unique because it focuses on how to control workers compensation premium costs rather than claims.

Levine on California Workers Compensation Premium and Insurance will help insurance buyers and sellers properly classify risks for premium determination, apply experience rating rules, understand the insureds' rights to claims and rating information, understand and explain how rates are determined, evaluate employee leasing, "sovereign nation," and other alternative programs, deal with insurer insolvencies and the State Fund, and negotiate important premium issues with the WCIRB or underwriters. It will also help attorneys representing insurers or insureds in premium disputes. This thoroughly-indexed reference and quarterly supplement service is designed to demystify the system and keep insurers, agents and brokers, and insureds up-to-date on recent and impending rule changes.

The author is Art Levine, Esq., M.A., CPCU, ARM, a prominent California workers compensation premium attorney and former workers compensation underwriter who also serves as Staff Counsel to the WCIRB Governing Committee's Public Members. This unique publication contains information, analysis, and expert opinion not available in any other resource.
