If you manage your workers’ comp policy directly from your payroll service provider, you can sign in to your account there and make any updates to your employee classifications.
If you have a workers’ comp billing account with NEXT (formerly AP Intego), follow these steps to (re)classify employees:
- Go to your customer dashboard.
- Open your workers’ comp policy and select the Employees tab. The source will be “Default” for any employees that have a defaulted class code needing review.
- If the class code for the employee is correct, click the blue checkmark and you’re all set.
- If the class code for the employee is incorrect, select the pencil icon next to each employee that needs review. An “Edit Employee Rates” screen will open to allow you to make changes. Select the best fitting class code.
Note that the description of the class code may not be an exact description of the employee's job duties. Choose the one that is the closest fit, or, if in doubt, choose the one with the higher rate to make sure that you will be covered if you ever needed to make a claim for that employee.
