Class code 9620 is used for employees that operate as a funeral director, or perform some function under the funeral director. Job positions may include funeral drivers, singers, organists or other musicians, embalmers, undertakers, and crematory employees. Drivers that qualify under class code 9620 will be employed by the funeral director and will operate vehicles such as hearses, limousines, flower cars, or ambulances. All work done under this classification must be considered part of a funeral service, wake, burial ritual, or other related event provided by the funeral director.

Anyone not considered an employee of the funeral director would be excluded and should be classified separately according to their work description. In addition, employees that work for a cemetery operation would also be excluded.
