Compulsory under Schedule 1
Business activities include supplying trucking labour (including drivers and driver's helpers) to any industry except warehousing, i.e. to any business activity falling under a CU in rate group 560. Drivers and driver's helpers may also load and unload trucks or other vehicles.
Trucking labour supplied under this CU includes all trucking labour whose work activities fall under one of the CUs in RG 570.
The custom loading and unloading of railway cars, trucks, or other vehicles is included here as a business activity in its own right, but only when the employer does not carry on another business activity falling under one of the CUs in RG 570.
Also included is automobile marshalling, i.e., the loading and/or unloading of cars from trains or carrier trucks. The cars are temporarily stored in yards which may or may not belong to the employer.
In the supply of labour industry, the agency supplying and paying the worker, not the employer to whom the worker is supplied, is responsible for covering the agency's workers under the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act.
These workers perform a variety of functions that are normally
- part of the day-to-day operations, and
- usually carried out by permanent staff
of the employer to whom they are supplied.
The activity of the worker, not the business activity of the employer to whom the worker is supplied, determines the classification of the worker's earnings.
For example, the earnings of a truck driver supplied to a manufacturing operation are classified in this CU.
All workers supplied are compulsorily covered under Schedule 1 even if
- the work activity they carry out, or
- the business activity of the employer to whom they are supplied
is not covered according to the "Status" line of the relevant CU in the ECM.
