Policy EA-09 - Employers in More Than One Industry

Effective Dates

July 1, 2008 and still in effect


Employer Assessments

General Information

Some employers work in more than one line of business. In these situations, it must be determined whether all of the employer’s businesses will be assigned to one industry classification, or whether separate classifications are justified. The intent of this policy is to support an industry classification system that provides for fair and equitable assessment rates.

This policy will not apply to a casual worker, defined in section 5(1)(a) of the Workers’ Compensation Act S.Y. 2008 (the "Act") to be "a person employed on a casual basis, otherwise than for the purposes of the employer’s industry." Further information is included within YWCHSB policy, "Optional Coverage for Casual Employees (Those Working Outside the Employer’s Normal Industry), Persons Acting in a Religious Function, and Volunteers," regarding coverage of these casual workers on the application of an employer.


This policy assists in determining the circumstances in which the employer must be assigned to more than one industry classification.
