Free January Workers' Compensation Courses for Members

Date: December 15, 2020

NFIB and Pinnacol team up to present the latest information on a big small business cost

Workers’ compensation premiums are one of the more expensive fixed costs in running a small business, which is why NFIB continually offers free courses on the latest information available and is teaming up once again with Pinnacol Assurance, the state’s largest workers’ compensation insurer.

These in-depth courses are free to members and follow up on the basic ones offered in December. Participation in December’s courses is not required to participate in January’s courses.

You can register for them through NFIB Senior Grassroots Manager Jake Braunger at [email protected] The goal of them is to save you money and keep you in compliance with the law.
