General Inclusions – Term Of The Day
In Workers Compensation, there are employers that may operate what seems to be two separate businesses. There are certain activities that are specifically included in all classifications and may not be separately classified. These activities must be assigned to the classification that describes your business or industry.
These activities, referred to as General Inclusions, include the following:
- Aircraft travel by employees, other than members of the flying crew
- Commissaries i.e., cafeterias for your staff
- Manufacturing of containers, such as bags, barrels, bottles, boxes, cans, cartons, or packing cases
- Plant dispensaries i.e., first aid for staff
- Maintenance or ordinary repair of the employer’s buildings or equipment when performed by employees
- Printing and lithography e.g., printing instruction sheets or product labels
- Stamping, welding, drilling, and blasting e.g., in connection with other construction or manufacturing operations
- Research laboratories e.g., new product research and development
- Drivers and their helpers
As you may have thought, these general inclusions may change from state to state and year to year, please notice this was written in 2010. We try to update articles. We do not delete them except under extremely defined circumstances.
