Extra-Territorial Classification Guidelines:

The following material was developed by NCCI to be used as a guide by auditors and underwriters in the determination of premium for contracting (construction) with extra-territorial employments where no company guidelines have been established for this purpose. Construction classifications are indicated by the addition of a construction code symbol (  ) next to the classification code number.

1.    Payroll of employees of contractors who have their place of business in a given state and operate also in adjoining states and who are constantly crossing state lines, but usually return to their homes each night, must be assigned to their headquarters’ state. Example: Contractors such as electricians, plumbers, carpet layers, etc.
2.    The payroll for construction project managers, executives, or superintendents who may visit a job but who are not in direct charge of a job must be assigned to the state in which their headquarters are located.
3.    There are contractors who maintain a permanent staff of employees and superintendents. If any of these employees or superintendents are assigned to a job that is located in a state other than their headquarters’ state, either for the duration of the job or any portion thereof, their payroll must be assigned to the highest rated of either the state in which the job is located or the headquarters’ state.
4.    The payroll of employees who are hired for a specific job project must be assigned to the state in which the job is located.

When a portion of the operations of a risk is insured in a monopolistic state fund, consider the special rules and requirements that may exist in such cases.
