BCO Fleet Workman Compensation Plan (FWCP) Cost varies

Plans available for fleets of two or more employee drivers.

Unladen Liability and Occupational Accident coverage or, in some cases, statutory Workers’ Compensation coverage are mandatory under a haulage contract.

If you choose to not participate in the Unladen Liability and/or CPP (Occupational Accident insurance) programs, you will need to show comparable Unladen Liability insurance policy and/or Occupational Accident coverage through an acceptable insurance carrier.

If statutory Workers’ Compensation coverage is required and you choose to not participate in the FWCP program, coverage will need to be provided by a licensed carrier with acceptable interstate coverage.
