Office Professional Staffing versus Light Industrial

What's the difference between office/clerical and light industrial?

Office Professional Staffing differs from Light Industrial staffing in a variety of ways. For one, the workers' compensation classification code is different and the costs will be lower for office employees since there is less risk involved.

Workers' Compensation Codes and Job Classification

A good staffing agency should ask you for your 4-digit workers' compensation code and then verify with their insurance provider to ensure proper job classification and coding. Usually your HR Department or Warehouse Supervisor will know this code, which is specific to your company and industry. Typically all office professional employees will be '8810' so no need to worry if you do not know this code.

  • Office/Clerical related employees are typically classified under the code '8810' which is relatively low cost due to low risk of workers' compensation and injuries.
  • Light Industrial related employees are classified under a different code depending on job classification and what the company does. This cost varies per state.

Insurance Coverage

TPI Staffing is the employer of record and manages all payroll expenses such as taxes, unemployment, workers' compensation, insurance and W-2 - allowing you to focus on your core business. The risk is of course higher for light industrial workers, thus the costs and specific insurance coverage may be more. Your markups may reflect this cost.
