Class code 4130 is used for employees that work for a glass merchant whose operations are conducted out of a permanent shop location. Job responsibilities that may be found include, but are not limited to, receiving, storing, and selling of glass; cutting glass to necessary sizes and dimensions; beveling, polishing, buffing, and silvering of plate glass; and installing glass into frames (in shop only). In addition, the manufacture of glass aquariums is also included in the scope of class code 4130.

Merchants listed under class code 4130 may engage in some incidental automobile glass installation, but operations that exclusively install new or replacement automobile windows would be excluded. Other related work that should be separately classified would be those who perform delivery and installation of windows at the customer’s location and any employee who works in the manufacturing of mirrors.
