    if its your first time getting it, you will be at a standard service rate depending on industry that is set by the state. in CT I pay 13% WC for my guys in my landscaping business. Its set for 3 years and then they do an audit and will adjust your rate from there depending on risks

    Not always true.... It depends on where you get it. I work by myself in a under a s corp and the state wanted like 3k for just me (one of the guys I sub for required it). I found an insurance agent in Mich (Larson Insurance) that got it for me for about $700.

    Well, just goes to show you how each state is different. I called a couple ins. agencies in the spring here and they all told me the same thing. their rates would all be the same for 3 years.

    also here in CT under a s-corp or llc you do not need to carry WC on yourself.
