Class Code 2003

Bakeries

Class code 2003 is used for employees that produce bakery items including baked goods, cookies and crackers, and cooked or uncooked frozen items. Baked goods examples include bread, cake, doughnuts, and pizza dough. Cookies and crackers include, but are not limited to toaster pastries, ice cream cones, and soft pretzels. Examples of frozen items include pies, sweet yeast goods, and cookie or pizza dough.

This class includes both commercial and neighborhood bakeries as well as salespersons and drivers in their employ. Code 2003 covers making pizza crusts prepared using a baking process. This code covers commercial bakeries’ heavy mechanical equipment for mixing, slicing and wrapping. It also covers work done by hand at smaller bakeries.

An insured must meet the requirements within the Basic Manuel in order to create a division of payroll for employees exposed to both baking and store or baking and restaurant operations. To do so, an insured must qualify for Codes 2003 and 8017 or Code 2003 and a restaurant class. If a bakery operates a store selling baked goods for on-premises consumption or for both on and off premises consumption, this store should be classified with the appropriate restaurant code.

Retail bakery and doughnut stores that do not bake on the premises but sell baked goods exclusively for consumption off premises should use Code 8017. If a store prepares food or has on-premises consumption, it should be rated with the appropriate restaurant code. In addition, if a store engages in additional food preparation to enhance their product, but does no baking on the premises, the store should be separately rated to the appropriate restaurant code. Enhancement examples include eggs, lunchmeats, bacon, and lettuce. Providing beverages or prepackaged self-serve condiments to customers are not considered enhancements.
