California, Nevada League Effort Aims to Curb Workers' Compensation Costs
California is noted for leading the way in trends such as fashion, but at least one role that puts the state at or near the head of the list isn't as attractive.
California businesses face some of the nation's highest workers' compensation premium costs. That includes credit unions, even though their risk exposure is less than industries such as construction or manufacturing. So in 2004, the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues introduced a program aimed at curbing those rates.
