Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features the release of two new reports from NCCI that examine remote work before, during, and after the pandemic, and dive into classification of telecommuters and potential implications of an increase in telecommuting on workers’ comp.
The first report, which is the second part of NCCI’s Q4 Economics Briefing, found that prior to the pandemic, only 6% of the employed worked primarily from home and about 3/4 of workers had never worked from home. In May 2020, over 1/3 of the employed worked from home, a close match for pre-pandemic estimates of the share of work that could be done remotely. The second report highlights the prevalence of telecommuting the Office and Clerical industry group at almost 60% of total payroll. Pandemic-related changes may result in payroll movement both within and to the group, impacting loss experience.
