Our Experience Modification Rate (EMR)
A company’s EMR is calculated from a formula comparing a company’s workers’ compensation claims to other similar-sized employers operating in the same business type. All employers start with an EMR of 1.0. If a company operates 20% better than average, its EMR would be a .80; if it is 20% worse than average, its EMR would be 1.20. J.B. Turner and Sons’ EMR is .67, which is outstanding in the roofing industry!
