IWIF Refund?

The Maryland Retailers Association got a $276,268 check from IWIF Workers’ Compensation Insurance. Why is a workers’ compensation insurance company – the largest provider of workers’ compensation insurance in Maryland – paying this retailers association? The payment is a group safety dividend check for controlling losses and preventing workplace injuries and accidents in 2007.

Certainly, it is a good idea to reward safe practices in the workplace so this sounds like a good plan.
