DOL/OWCP RIN: 1240-AA15 Publication ID: Fall 2020 
Title: Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act: Definition of Recreational Vessel 

The Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (OWCP) administers the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act and its extensions. The Longshore Act establishes a federal workers’ compensation system for an employee’s disability or death arising in the course of covered maritime employment.  The Act excludes from coverage workers who build recreational vessels under sixty-five in length, or repair or dismantle recreational vessels, so long as the worker is covered by a state workers’ compensation program.  OWCP will propose amendments to the current regulatory definition of recreational vessel and related regulations that apply when determining whether these workers are excluded from Longshore Act coverage.  The revisions will clarify implementation of this exclusion.
