Clerical Office/Telecommuters

However, telecommuting does bring up some issues and affect workers compensation. It creates much ambiguity regarding the employee and compensation and how laws dictate telecommuting employees.

Many small businesses, no matter their industry, tend to employ clerical or office workers. Categorized as workers’ comp code 8810, these employees are exclusively dedicated to office activities with no additional job duties.

Banks and trust companies, library and museum professional employees, and computer programmers are also specifically included in the workers’ comp 8810 classification. However, clerical employees of specific businesses may have their own workers’ comp clerical classification code, e.g. doctor’s office receptionists are assigned to code 8832 while receptionists for law offices are assigned to code 8820.
