Improving the California workers’

compensation system through research, information, education and representation

The California Workers’ Compensation Institute is a private, nonprofit organization of insurers licensed to write workers’ compensation in California, as well as public and private self-insured employers who serve as associate members. CWCI’s primary functions are to collect and analyze claims data to improve benefit delivery to injured workers, identify system-wide trends, and address key issues of interest to the membership, workers’ compensation community and public policymakers.

CWCI analyzes statutes and regulations and provides testimony to public policymakers in support of a rational regulatory environment and participates in judicial cases to advocate a reasonable understanding of the workers’ compensation system. The Institute also produces a wide variety of research publications, provides information and technical training to help industry professionals stay abreast of changes, and serves as a forum where members can consider system-wide issues and reach consensus on practical solutions.
