RIN: 1240-AA02

Publication ID: Fall 2010

Title: Regulations Implementing the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act: Recreational Vessels

Abstract: The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 amended the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act, 33 U.S.C. 901 to 950, to exclude from the Act's coverage certain employees who repair recreational vessels and who dismantle them for repair, regardless of the vessel's length. To implement this amendment, the Department anticipates proposing a rule that addresses the definition of recreational vessel and coverage of those employees who work in both covered employment and employment excluded under the amendment.
