Workers' Compensation Class Codes Related to Computer I.T.

Employees are grouped into classification codes based on what they do for their job. The National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) currently utilizes nearly 800 class codes to help insurance companies categorize employees. Insurance companies create a manual rate for each class code in order to price a policy.

Properly classifying workers is an important part of the quote process. Mis-classified employers may end up paying too much for coverage or owing too much after an audit.

How Does Workers' Comp Work?

Workers' comp coverage protects employees when injured. It makes good financial sense for both parties.

Injuries and accidents happen. A workers’ comp policy is a no-fault system that pays for these accidents and claims. It’s required by law in most states.

Coverage does not protect employers from everything. Sometimes employees and employers can be negligent.

In some instances, workers’ compensation coverage will not protect employers or employees from the legal liability resulting from a workplace injury.

How Much Does Tech Insurance Cost?

The average rate our customers pay for workers’ compensation under the tech class code is around $0.39 cents per $100 of payroll. The average cost for a general liability insurance policy is about $500.00. Technology E&O insurance costs will vary by state and industry.

  • Work Comp is priced based on payroll
  • Your state and Emod will affect your cost
  • The type of I.T work can modify rates
  • Premium discounts and policy credits may apply
  • GL rates for I.T. are based on sales (rated per $1000)
