Taking control of your future

    Workers’ compensation is a highly regulated social insurance, which for many employers feels like a restriction on the possibility for success for workers and financial outcomes.

    For a large number of employers there are alternatives to the standard workers’ compensation in each jurisdiction, either in the form of self-insurance (either state based or National), or in other “burning cost” alternatives such as LPR, LEAP and RPL.

    Lockton are experts at helping you explore those opportunities by reviewing your data, performance and future trajectory and determining the eligibility, feasibility and the potential risks and rewards from the available options and presenting the outcomes to your management for clear decision making, and to assist in transition should alternatives be decided upon.
