BWC has extended the Policy Activity Rebate (PAR) Program for a third year. We developed this program to raise employers' awareness and increase understanding of some of the most important aspects of workers' compensation, including safety, claims and policy management. PAR puts you in control, offering a wide range of activities that provide your organization a chance to earn a 50-percent premium rebate up to $2,000.
PAR is a customizable plan that allows employers to choose from 33 activities to earn a rebate. Each activity has associated credits. Depending on the nature of the activity, you can earn up to two credits. You must complete 11 credits during the enrolled policy year. Private employers have until May 31, 2021, to complete their activities. Public employers have until Nov. 30, 2020.
For your convenience, we’re conducting free 15-minute educational webinars for you to learn more about the PAR program without leaving your office! Don’t miss this opportunity to interact with our risk-management staff, including immediate, on-demand, and unlimited Q&A opportunities. Attendance at these webinars is not mandatory. Register for a webinar on one of these dates.
