Class Code 5613

Debris Removal – Temporary Labor Service

Class code 5613 is used for employees that perform debris removal, cleanup related work, timekeeping functions, and watchguard duties at a construction site, on a temporary labor basis. Jobs of the cleanup nature are generally performed after construction is complete and include the removing of debris like scrap lumber, scrap metal, or other scrap materials left by a construction crew from the site. For watchguard work, personnel will generally provide temporary security related services to a construction site, attempting to prevent malicious mischief, vandalism, and theft during a variety of shifts and times.

Exclusions to class code 5613 include individuals who are considered a cleaning contractor (performing janitorial type work), those who work on a construction site running errands, delivering materials, and helping with cleanup, but not exclusively employed for cleanup procedures, and watchguards employed by factories, abandoned buildings, or other sites not related to construction. Additionally, anyone who performs cleanup, debris removal, timekeeping, or watchguard work on a basis not considered “temporary” would also be excluded. When classifying workers to this class code, it is also important to follow the extra-territorial classification guidelines for each worker to ensure that they are properly classified.
