About NCSI


The Council believes that the workers' compensation system, properly administered by the states, is a vital part of the economic and social fabric of the United States. The Council aims to preserve it and to protect it as the most effective means of resolving claims for industrial injuries and occupational diseases between employers and employees. The National Council recognizes that employers are the sole source of funds for the payment of all workers' compensation, whether they assume the risk themselves or pay insurance premiums, and speaks for all employers in respect to workers' compensation costs.


The National Council advocates that financially responsible employers should have the privilege of becoming self-insured; that compensation programs should be administered fairly and responsibly; that workers injured within the scope of their employment should receive adequate compensation and appropriate medical care; that disputed claims should be adjudicated promptly and impartially; and that the cost of providing compensation by the employer should be given proper economic consideration as legislatures modify state compensation laws.
