As we have previously communicated, Florida anticipated a major workers' compensation rate increase. Effective 12/1/16, the Florida Department of Insurance approved a 14.5% increase of all workers' compensation premiums to new and renewal policies. 

This rate increase is a response to recent Florida Supreme Court rulings and legislation passed by the Florida Senate earlier this year.  We will update you when more specific information becomes available.
