Advanced Premium Audit Topics

Our premium audit experts have developed a new presentation to take a deeper dive into audit topics. This webinar expands on our previous Understanding the Premium Audit Process presentation by reviewing general classification rules, classification definitions and phraseology, governing rules for payroll inclusions and exclusion, and much more.

We'll be covering:

  • Premium audit guidelines as set forth by the Workers’ Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau of California, WCIRB
  • Governing classification rules and principles
  • Specific classification inclusions and exclusions
  • Classification definition phraseology
  • What is, and what is not considered payroll
  • Governing rules for the division of wages for a single employee
  • Dual wage classifications and recordkeeping

We hope this in-depth presentation provides you with valuable information and helps alleviate some stress during the audit process.
