Wiring Intermatic timer switch without ground

I am replacing a grounded single pole toggle switch controlling a bath fan with an Intermatic timer switch, FD60MWC, which has contacts for load and neutral wires, but doesn't have a ground contact. What do I do with the ground wire in the box when installing this timer switch?

If there's no

green wire or screw anywhere on the timer, then you can simply cap off (use a wire nut on the end of the wire) and push it into the back of the electrical box. Make sure the ground wire doesn't touch any of the other screws on the switch, especially the one the black/white wires are connected to.
