More retailer workers injured in January than during holiday rush: AmTrust

November 17, 2023

More retail workers were injured in January, not during November and December when many companies take on seasonal employees, according to a report released Friday by comp insurer AmTrust Financial Services Inc.

The 2023 Retail Risk Report shows that the number of comp injury claims for every $100,000 of a retailer’s payroll in the U.S. is 25% higher in January than the earlier months leading up to the holiday season.

“While one might expect injury rates to soar due to the influx of seasonal workers, there’s a hidden dynamic at play,” Matt Zender, senior vice president, workers compensation product manager at AmTrust, said in a statement.
