With Christmas only a week away, it is never too late to think about the best way to ensure a safe and happy holiday season.  We all get involved with charity activities, church events, holiday parties and family get-togethers. These events have many common factors -- lots of people, food, and sometimes alcoholic beverages.

The Workers Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau (WCIRB) announced today that it is recommending an overall 9.6% rate increase for workers compensation rates in California for the 2014 year.  The WCIRB is a neutral governmental entity that reviews loss information from all of the workers’ compensation companies in California and then recommends the rates for workers’ compensation insurance to the state insurance commissioner.
