Class code 8381 is used for employees that work in a retail self-service gasoline station where at least 90% of the sales are from gasoline purchases. For the state of Florida, employees under this classification must accept payment electronically from a physically separate structure and not a building that customers will enter. In addition, employees cannot engage in the pumping of gas for the customer and the business cannot offer vehicles for sale, automobile service (such as repair or towing), or operate a parking facility at the same location as the gas station. Any employee working outside the scope of this class code should be excluded and otherwise classified.
