Collaboration provides customer restaurants fast, digital-first workers’ compensation insurance coverage options.

Austin, Tex., April 6, 2022 — The California Restaurant Association (CRA) has designated Cerity, a provider of digital-first, direct-to-customer workers’ compensation insurance policies, an insurance carrier of choice. Cerity is a subsidiary of Employers Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: EIG). This preferential designation expands an existing collaboration with Employers Insurance Group and its network of authorized insurance agents.

Workers’ compensation insurance protects workers and employers in the event of a work-related injury or illness and is required in the state of California for businesses with employees. “Through this collaboration, CRA customers now have the option to purchase discounted, quality workers’ compensation coverage either through an Employers’ appointed independent insurance agent or directly through Cerity,” said Kathy Antonello, CEO of Employers Holdings, Inc. “Giving small businesses an array of purchasing options is important to meeting the demand of today’s insurance buyer.”

Restaurant owners who choose to obtain their workers’ compensation insurance coverage through Cerity will benefit from a fast, digital and mobile-friendly experience that lets them acquire and maintain their policies. Other benefits include instant quotes, flexible and affordable payment plans, efficient claims management, and loss control services.

“We understand the daily hustle needed to operate a successful independent restaurant, especially with all the challenges over the past few years. Busy restaurant owners need the peace-of-mind that they have the right workers’ compensation insurance coverage at an affordable price,” said Michael Doerr, chief operating officer at California Restaurant Association. “This partnership gives California Restaurant Association customers more value so they can easily get the protection they need, so they can focus on other aspects of their operations.”
