Universal Citation: TN Code § 50-6-418 (2020)
- The department of commerce and insurance shall approve rating plans for workers' compensation insurance that give specific identifiable consideration in the setting of rates to employers that implement a drug-free workplace program pursuant to rules adopted by the division of workers' compensation of the department of labor and workforce development. The plans must take effect January 1, 1997, must be actuarially sound, and must state the savings anticipated to result from the drug testing. The credit shall be at least five percent (5%) unless the commissioner of commerce and insurance determines that five percent (5%) is actuarially unsound.
- The commissioner is also authorized to develop a schedule of premium credits for workers' compensation insurance for employers who have safety programs that attain certain criteria for safety programs. The commissioner shall consult with the commissioner of labor and workforce development in setting the criteria.
- The department of commerce and insurance shall apply the drug-free workplace program credit separately to each individual company for an employer having more than one (1) company under one (1) workers' compensation insurance policy. However, no credit given to an individual company may be combined with any credit given to any other company of the common employer or to the common employer itself.
