Each year, the workers’ compensation assessment rate is recalculated, based upon the projected costs to fulfill the responsibilities outlined in Rhode Island General Laws. According to the department, these responsibilities include the funding of the Workers’ Compensation Court, the Workers’ Compensation Fraud Unit, the Workers’ Compensation Education Unit, the Workers’ Compensation Advisory Council, the Donley Rehabilitation Center and other administrative and operational costs associated with the workers’ compensation program in Rhode Island.
