You only need to enter each class once, so everyone that does a similar job goes into the same class code. You can also view the full list of class codes if you would like to do some research.
What is Workers Comp?
When a laborer is injured on the job, worker compensation requires the employer to pay for the cost of medical care as well as a portion of the income they lose while they recover from those injuries. Workers Comp is the only process established to compensate injured workers. An injured worker cannot typically bring a general liability suit against their employer or a contractor. Their only option is to report the injury as a workers comp claim. Since the workers comp system is the only way an employee can be compensated for their injury, it is critical for anyone who hires laborers to carry workers compensation insurance. Injured workers are entitled to workers comp benefits whether the employer caused the injury or not. The employee can violate the safety manual and stand on a ladder upside down and sideways while the employer is actively telling them not to. If they are injured, they are still entitled to benefits.
