Class Code: 8742
Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:
Code 8742 is applied to outside salespersons or collectors. Since these employees are common to many businesses, they are considered to be Standard Exceptions. As such, they are classified to Code 8742 unless the classification applicable to their employment includes salespersons. Under the latter circumstance the outside salespersons or collectors are assigned to the classification that includes salespersons, not Code 8742.
Salespersons or collectors as defined in the Basic Manual are employees engaged in such duties away from the employer’s premises. Code 8742 is not available for employees who deliver merchandise. These employees are assigned to the driver’s classification applicable to the risk even though these employees may also collect or sell. If they deliver merchandise by walking or using public transportation, they are assigned to the governing classification.Judgment is necessary in assessing these employees’ duties for classification purposes since occasional courtesy deliveries of a nominal quantity of merchandise would not preclude them from being classified to Code 8742.
Employees or operations assigned by analogy to Code 8742 include:
