“For nearly 100 years, NCCI has been the trusted source for workers’ compensation information,” NCCI President and CEO Bill Donnell said in a press release. “We produce comprehensive reports like these to help stakeholders navigate through complex issues that shape the regulatory and legislative landscape.”
