EMPLOYERS®, America’s small business insurance specialist®, has been named the workers’ compensation carrier of choice by the Apartment Association of Greater Los Angeles (AAGLA). Comprised of 9,400 active apartment owners and property managers, eligible AAGLA members can receive a 5 percent discount on their workers’ compensation premiums on policies placed with EMPLOYERS.
