Workers’ Comp Payroll Audits

Payroll audits are necessary because workers’ compensation premiums directly correspond to an employer’s total payroll.  Practices with many employees will pay more premium than a smaller practice with fewer employees. While sometimes inconvenient, these audits are important.  For example, your total payroll will likely decrease if a member of your staff retires.  As a result, your workers’ compensation premium will be lower because of the reduced staff exposure.  The payroll audit process is typically the means by which these and other common occurrences are factored into your premium.

If you’re corporate officer or partner……

The Michigan workers’ compensation statue allows you to include or exclude yourself from coverage under a professional corporation or partnership workers’ comp policy. Before making a decision, speak with an MDA Insurance representative as there are many factors to consider. Given the relatively low cost to include yourself, however, it is generally recommended that eligible corporate officers or partners do so (sole proprietors are not eligible for workers’ compensation coverage, although coverage must be provided for employees of the sole proprietor in accordance with state statute).
