A Worker's Compensation Voice for Self-Insured Employers In Wisconsin
Traditionally, the Wisconsin worker's compensation system has been a model for other states in fostering and promoting commercial and industrial growth and development.
Modern Wisconsin employer and insurers, however, face numerous, immediate challenges in assuring themselves that the worker's compensation system is fairly administered, that disputed claims are promptly and impartially adjudicated, and that the cost of providing compensation is given due consideration by the legislature. The newly-founded Wisconsin of Self-Insurers, Inc. (WCSI) is intended to serve as a voice for employers in the evolution of the structure and function of the Wisconsin Worker's Compensation System.
