WAC 296-17A-1305

Classification 1305.

Cable companies, including homeowners' associations or cooperatives offering a central cable system; technical field staff
Classification 1305 is restricted to firms providing point-to-point subscription television or other cable communications services. These companies normally operate and maintain control centers where they receive signals through antennas or satellite dishes from broadcasting stations. The signals are then transmitted to subscribers. This classification applies to work performed away from the employer's premises, or on the roof or exterior of any building on the employer's premises. Work specific to this classification includes installing, testing, and repairing cable lines, antennas, satellite dishes, poles, towers, and using any field equipment for extending and maintaining the cable lines or doing point-to-point hook-up for customers.
This classification excludes:
• All employees working inside the employer's control centers, offices, or facilities who are reported in classification 4502;
• Workers employed by television and radio stations or audio and video production companies who are reported in classifications 4501 and 4502;
• Construction, maintenance, or repair by contractors, who are reported according to the following type work:
– Underground lines - Classification 0107;
– Overhead lines - Classification 0509;
– Towers - Classification 0508;
– Electrical wires, cable, or antenna hook-ups within buildings - Classification 0601; and
– Satellite dish and antenna hook-ups on building exteriors - Classification 0607.
Employers normally are assigned classification 4502 in addition to classification 1305; however, they must maintain records that permit the department to confirm hours worked in either classification. When employers do not or cannot maintain these records, they must report all hours in question in the classification with the higher rate.
For administrative purposes, classification 1305 is divided into the following subclassification(s):
