Retail Staff - Workman or non-Workman
Dear HR Practitioners,
Are retail staff/ sales associate considered workman or non-workman? Apparently I am unable to get a straight and definite answer from the government bodies.
P.S. According to the newspapers online article, they quoted that "Non-workmen are defined by the Employment Act as employees engaged in white collar occupations, such as clerks and retail assistants, while workmen refers to employees engaged in manual labour, such as labourers and machine operators.
Retail staff/sales associate are non-workman
It all boils down to the tasks performed. If they are required to handle heavy load often, mostly likely classified as workmen.
