DE Workers Comp Class Codes

Workers compensation in Delaware is regulated by Department of Labor, Division of Industrial Affairs, The Office of Workers' Compensation. The Office of Workers' Compensation administers and enforces state laws, rules and regulations regarding industrial accidents and illnesses.

According to the The Delaware Compensation Rating Bureau: "The DCRB is a non-profit corporation formed in 1917 in accordance with the insurance laws of Delaware and is not affiliated with state government. The DCRB's enabling statute specified that classification of employers, underwriting rules, policy forms, loss cost values and rating plans for workers compensation shall be proposed by a rating bureau. The DCRB is subject to supervision and examination by the Delaware Insurance Commissioner, who must approve its ability to compile loss costs and assigned risk rates on an equitable and impartial basis. The DCRB membership is comprised of insurance carriers authorized to sell workers compensation insurance in Delaware."

For example, for a roofer, tree trimmer, or demolition company, the cost could be $17 per $100 in payroll, or even higher. On the other hand, the cost to cover a attorney, accountant or real estate agent could be under $0.20 per $100 of their payroll. So, for an employee that earns $40,000 a year, a blue collar contracting company could pay around $6800, where a white collar business may pay just $80. It all depends on the risk or injury associated with the code.
