Classification 4501 applies to technical staff for radio, television, recording, and video production, who perform work such as installing, testing, and repairing lines, antennas (including tower mounted), satellite dishes, and field transmitting equipment outside their employers' offices or studios.
This classification excludes:
• Employees working inside the employer's studio or office who are to be reported separately in classification 4502;
• Workers employed by cable service providers who are reported separately in classifications 1305 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 hookups on building exteriors - Classification 0607.
Employers normally are assigned classification 4502 in addition to classification 4501; 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 4501 is divided into the following subclassification(s):
