RISK MANAGEMENT AND LOSS CONTROL
One of the least promoted, yet extremely valuable, services to the client business is the risk management provided by the CornerstonePEO in the areas of workers' compensation insurance and unemployment. CornerstonePEO aggressively manages claims in both areas. Why? Because, in most cases, a work comp or unemployment claim goes against CornerstonePEO's experience, not the client's. This is one of the greatest benefits of the co-employer relationship.
Imagine a construction company with 10 employees that incurs a $200,000 work comp claim. The construction company does not have the resources to manage this claim and it goes against the company's experience. This, in turn, raises the work comp rates to a point that may likely drive that company out of business. A PEO, on the other hand, has a department that will manage this claim, working to find a quick resolution. These efforts will inevitably result in a much lower claim cost.
Cornerstone PEO can provide you with services such as:
