The mass shift to remote working (and even permanent telecommuting) has interesting implications on workers’ compensation class codes.
Prior to the pandemic, only 6 percent of U.S. workers worked from home – and 75 percent had never worked from home before. This all changed in May 2020 when more than 33 percent of workers started remote working.
While there may be a shift among classifications in the months to come, other issues come to light. The move to ergonomically incorrect home offices could cause more repetitive stress injuries and slips and falls.
MedRisk is committed to keeping a pulse on class codes and trends in workers’ compensation to help adjusters, case managers and providers efficiently and effectively care for workers.
