  Decision 1525 16
M. Keil

  • Class of employer (best fit)

The employer's operations were classified in two rate groups: 751 for glass and glazing, and 636 for paint, glass and wallpaper stores. The employer appealed a decision of the Appeals Resolution Officer classifying two employees in Rate Group 751.
The two employees were the sales manager and sales estimator. The Vice-Chair found that the best fit for them was in Rate Group 636. They worked inside with the other salespeople and never go out in the field, and did not do anything discretely involved with installation. They sold products. As the payrolls were segregated and their work fell under sales, Rate Group 751 was not appropriate. The appeal was allowed.
