Workers Compensation Report

Hello, @LorraineL.


Allow me to provide some more information about the Adj. WC Compensation tab.


The Workers' Compensation premiums calculated for the state you have set up for your employee. If you need the report to calculate for multiple states, then you can calculate the premiums by using these steps:


  1. Navigate to the Reports tab, hover over Employees & Payroll, and select Workers Comp Summary.
  2. Set the date range. 
  3. Press the Customize Report, then the Filters tab.
  4. Choose the Workers Comp Code and all the other codes that apply to a single state form the filters. Hit OK.
  5. In the WC Premium column, take note of the total and multiply it by the experience modification rate for the corresponding state. This will give you the adjusted (final) Workers' Compensation premium for the state for the period you selected.


Now you'll have the correct amount for your Workers Compensation. You can check out this article for more information: Pay Workers' Compensation premiums.


Feel free to post below if you have any other questions. Enjoy the rest of your week!
