Workers' Compensation Class Codes Related to Lawn Care

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.

Class Code 9102 | Lawn Care

Lawn maintenance businesses are primarily engaged in providing lawn care such as mowing, weed-eating and other light lawn maintenance such as replenishing mulch and other general ground maintenance. Lawn spraying for fertilization and weed control is commonly included under this class code. Work can be performed for individuals, business facilities and other private and public entities and municipalities. Golf course maintenance is typically included under this code as well.

Landscaping services are often provided in conjunction with lawn care services: class code 0042. A business will need to keep clear payroll records documenting work performed in each class code in order to divide payroll during an annual workers' comp audit. Otherwise an insurance company will apply the most expensive class code to the payroll.

Lawn care is a separate operation from excavation- 6219. Excavation involves changing the contour of the land and may include back-filling dirt. Tree pruning and trimming is also a separate operation and generally falls under tree service- 0601.

Alternative State Class Codes for Landscaping:

Many states often use special class codes, other than the class codes recommended by NCCI, for certain industries.

Class Code State
0042 | Lawn Care and Landscaping California / New York
9014 | Lawn Maintenance Delaware / Pennsylvania
012 | Landscapers Delaware / Pennsylvania

Synonyms: lawn maintenance, park NOC, golf course grounds maintenance, country club grounds-keeping, park maintenance, lawn mowing.

What Does Workers' Comp Cover?

What does workers comp cover?

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.
  • Loss of income for employees unable to perform job duties
  • Medical expenses for employees injured on the job
  • Retraining expenses for employees unable to return
  • Permanent injury or disability for lasting injuries
  • Survivor benefits if employees are killed on the job

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

Workmans comp does not cover negligence
In some instances, workers' compensation coverage will not protect employers or employees from the legal liability resulting from a workplace injury.
  • Injuries resulting from a violation of the law
  • Incidents resulting from employees' use fo drugs or alcohol
  • Injuries that did not occur in connection with the job
  • Clear company policy violations
  • Injuries that did not occur in connection with the job

Lower Lawn Care Insurance Costs

The cost of business insurance has been increasing for lawn maintenance companies. General liability and workers' comp insurance have been the major cause of the increase in the cost. We've partnered with our insurance companies to provide more affordable commercial insurance packages for our customers. Ask about our package insurance options for lawn care:

  Workers Compensation and Employers Liability

  Commercial General Liability

  Personal Property and Commercial Property

  Umbrella Liability and more

Not all lines of insurance coverage or all class codes will be available in all states. Contact one of our Workers' Comp Specialists for program details on general liability and workers' compensation insurance.
