Provision of Employment

Persons doing skilled or unskilled, manual or clerical work are covered under the ordinance. However, those engaged in supervisory and managerial capacity are usually excluded from its scope. To decide whether a worker is covered under the ordinance, it is the nature of work (i.e., manual or clerical) and not designation or pay that is essential in determining the status of an employee. It is the nature of work and not the job category that makes a worker covered under the ordinance. For example, a teacher is not considered a workman under the law as a teacher’s job requires more of mental power and capacity (quite opposite to manual or clerical worker). Some limited manual (writing on blackboard, making lecture notes) and clerical (checking students’ notebooks) work is incidental to a teacher’s job however it never forms a substantial part of his job, so he/she is not a workman under the act. Some employers also (in order to keep workers from unionizing and defeat the spirit of law) award many of the employees a supervisory status, however if a supervisor’s job is of manual or clerical nature (and without any hire/fire authority), he is still a workman under the act.
