You are an employer who has recently come under the workers' compensation law in your state and you have had to acquire workers' compensation insurance, and now you've been told that someone from the workers compensation carrier is going to visit your premises and conduct an audit. Hello, I'm Robert Todd and I'm here to answer the question, what to expect in a workers' compensation audit? Well first of all what you want to make sure is that you designate one individual to answer the auditors questions, and you want to furnish that individual with your payroll and as much information about the particular job descriptions and job duties of your employees as possible, so that one individual can answer the auditors questions. And the main thing to remember in an audit is the auditor is not out to try to find a mistake in your business, but the auditor is trying to find out how many employees you actually have, as oppose to independent contractors or casual labor and what your actual payroll is, because that's the basis upon what your premium is determined. So you want to try to cooperate with that auditor as much as possible. I'm Robert Todd and thank you for watching.
