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.
