Enforcement: The EMR Rating
The Experience Modification Rate (EMR) compares workers’ compensation claims experience to other companies similar in size who operate in the same industry. Everything from minor injuries to major accidents are factored into this rating. A rating of 1.0 represents the average in the industry. If the company’s experience is 20% better then average, their EMR would be a .80 or 20% worse would be 1.20.1
