Workers' Compensation Codes Related to Auto Maintenance

Employees are grouped into classification codes based on their job duties and work functions. The National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) currently utilizes nearly 800 class codes to help insurance companies and agents categorize employees for rating purposes. Insurance companies set a base manual rate for each class code in order to begin pricing a policy.

Properly classifying workers is an important part of the quote process. Mis-classified employees can cost small businesses thousands of dollars. You could end up paying too much for coverage or owing more money after an annual audit.

Class Code 8380 | Automotive Repair

Auto repair is a broad classification for worker' comp and typically applies to service stations and gas stations that perform repair or service work. This includes batteries, tires, oil changes, tune-ups, transmission work and more. This class also includes specialty shops such as muffler shops and brake repair. Code 8380 also applies to employees working for new and used auto dealers and includes mechanics, parts, and service writers. Additional types of auto shops associated with this code include tire dealers. car washes, glass replacement, and window tinting.

Class Code 8933 | Auto Body Repair Shop

Auto body repair is applicable for businesses engaged in the body repair of automobiles using metal, fiberglass, and plastics. This classification includes upholstering, painting, and dent repair. Paint only operations typically fall under class code 9505- Auto Painting.

Class Code 3821 | Automobile Recycling

The code for auto recycling and driver applies to salvage yard operations where wrecked vehicles are salvaged for parts. It includes the dismantling or crushing of all types of automobiles.

Class Code 3632 | Automotive Machine Shop

Auto machine shops cover separate operations whereas parts are manufactured, fabricated, or rebuild while not attached to any vehicle. This code includes the repair of engines, inboard/outboard motors, and other small engine repairs.

Sometimes a state will deviate from the industry class code recommended by NCCI. Instead of the NCCI code, they may require the utilization of a state specific class code for certain business segments.
