If I will be working in an office at a granite business
How much wokets comp would my employer be expected to pay for me? Would all employees at the business have the same WC insurance rate? Ex: office admin vs cutter and polisher? Business is located in Georgia.
Since I’m not sure what you do (what your job is) I can’t provide a precise answer, but let’s say you make $30k per year in a low risk-job, your employer may have to pay $300 per year for your workers comp for you.
You’ve asked a good follow up question, because yes, rates vary significantly based on the work. Risky trades (cutter) will have a much higher worker’s compensation rate than office workers. Workers are typically ‘pooled’ into categories with similar risk-workers. One way your employer may be able to lower worker’s comp rates is to work with a payroll provider like Gusto that can purchase worker’s comp at group rates. I’ve attached a few articles below you may want to print/share with your management team. Best wishes!
