EMPLOYERS® Named Workers’ Compensation Carrier of choice by North Carolina Restaurant and Lodging Association

RENO, Nev.—September 20, 2019— EMPLOYERS®, America’s small business insurance specialist®, has been named the workers’ compensation carrier of choice by the North Carolina Restaurant and Lodging Association (NCRLA).

Starting today, EMPLOYERS will provide NCRLA members with information and services to implement risk management programs designed to help keep employees safe, reduce costs and promote profitability. EMPLOYERS provides these resources to all of its policyholders through its Loss Control Connectionsm, a web-based loss control platform that combines safety and loss control information with a suite of unique software programs that can help manage risk and reduce losses.

“We are excited to partner with EMPLOYERS to bring a strong workers’ compensation plan to our members while also improving their bottom lines,” said Lynn Minges, President and CEO of the North Carolina Restaurant & Lodging Association. “As a benefit of membership, thousands of hospitality businesses in North Carolina will now have the opportunity to receive great coverage at a very competitive rate.”

“EMPLOYERS is committed to fulfilling the unique needs of the restaurant and lodging industries, which are among the largest classes of business for us,” said Wayne Hilston, Vice President Sales – Programs & Payroll Alliance of EMPLOYERS. “The best workers’ compensation claim is the one that never happens, and keeping employees safe on the job is one of our main priorities. However, if a workplace injury happens at a place such as a restaurant or hotel, our claims adjusters can help control claim costs by working with the injured worker and physicians to help evaluate and administer the appropriate care. Just like the NCRLA’s commitment to its members, our core focus is providing policyholders with information and tools to successfully operate and grow their businesses. We are pleased to join together with the NCRLA to provide its eligible members with valuable coverage and quality services.”
