Assign a Workers' Comp Class to an employee

Learn how to assign workers' compensation classes to your employees.

If you assign workers' compensation classes to your employees, the Workers' Compensation report automatically sorts by the assigned classes.

Note:  The steps provided below are for QuickBooks Online Payroll and Intuit Online Payroll customers only. If you are using QuickBooks Online but have not subscribed to payroll, you will not see the Payroll section nor the Workers' Compensation in the Reports menu. Managing payroll data is also different for non payroll subscribers.

Assign a workers' comp class to an employee:

  1. From the Workers menu, select Employees.
  2. Select the employee's name, and then select Edit employee.
  3. Select Employment at the top of the page, and then enter the name of the worker's comp class. The report lists the wages per employee if you don't assign classes to employees.
  4. Select Done.
  1. Go to Employees, then select employee's name.
  2. In the Employment section, select Edit.
  3. Enter the name of the workers' comp class.
  4. Select OK.

Run workers compensation report

  3. Change Date Range if needed.
  4. Select Run Report.
  1. Go to Reports.
  2. Under Employer Reports, select Workers' Compensation.
  3. Change the date Range, then select Update Report.
