Employee Ownership Companies
A new NCEO study has found that employee ownership companies have lower workers’ compensation insurance rates than comparable non-employee ownership firms. Leslie Hakala authored the study. She began the project as an NCEO research intern and completed it for a thesis requirement at Harvard University. The study was unable to ascribe a specific causal relationship between employee ownership and lower workers’ compensation costs, but it did find that these costs declined as employee ownership plans matured.
