WAC 296-17A-7309

Classification 7309.

7309-00 Work activity centers
Applies only to the people with the most severe disabilities, and to people with developmental disabilities whose handicaps are so severe as to make their productivity inconsequential, and who are included on the center's certificate for special minimum wage issued by the U.S. Department of Labor.
This classification excludes:
All staff who operate work activity centers and all staff who operate sheltered workshops, even if the sheltered workshop also operates a work activity center, who are to be reported separately in classification 6709; and
• People with disabilities, including people with developmental disabilities, who are enrolled in sheltered workshops who are to be reported separately in classification 6709.
Special note: Work activity centers differ from sheltered workshops in the severity of the impairments of the participants.
While the workers' compensation rates for classifications 7309 and 6709 are identical, the premiums for classification 7309 are calculated on a piece rate basis to reflect the limited productivity of the workers covered by this classification.
