What We Do
The California Workers' Compensation Institute is now in its 53rd year of operations. Because of its research capabilities, its reputation, and its broad-based industry perspective, CWCI is uniquely positioned to provide data, analyses and practical expertise on issues and trends affecting California workers' compensation. Institute research, which is typically based on claims data collected from member companies, spotlights problems and concerns within the system, helps build consensus on practical solutions, and is often used to evaluate the impact of various proposals. At the same time, CWCI provides a voice for industry perspectives and concerns through legislative and regulatory testimony and amicus briefs in key court cases, while Institute information and publications, email alerts, committee meetings and educational seminars allow members and others in the community to stay on top of all the new rules, regulations, statutes, case law and other pertinent events as they unfold.
Full membership in CWCI is limited to insurers licensed to write California workers' compensation insurance. Insurer members pay annual dues of $100 and an additional assessment based on their California premium writings.
