Sales personnel with outside duties, messengers, insurance producers or surplus line brokers, social workers and dieticians employed by a home health care service Although referenced as sales personnel, this classification also applies to others with similar type activities.Â While some duties may be performed in a business office, the work is often conducted away from the employer's physical business location or in showrooms. We refer to work that takes place away from the employer's premises as "outside sales." Classification 6303 is a standard exception classification, as described in WAC 296-17-31018 Exception classifications, with restrictions on both the type of work and where the work can take place. If any of a worker's duties are excluded from 6303 because of restrictions described in this rule, then none of the worker's hours may be reported in classification 6303.
Special note: Care must be taken to: â¢ Look beyond job titles such as salesperson, social worker, or messenger. Job titles do not ensure the work satisfies the restrictions for classification 6303; â¢ Ensure standard exceptions are permitted - Some basic classifications include sales work; â¢ Ensure workers assigned classification 6303 perform no work other than what is allowed by this classification or that permitted in WAC 296-17-4904. Classification 6303 includes all activities allowed by WAC 296-17A-4904 (office workers) as well as: â¢ Meeting with customers off premises; â¢ Showing and demonstrating products and merchandise; â¢ Off-site classroom instructional training; â¢ Driving oneself or being transported to or from meeting or training locations; â¢ Delivering interoffice mail, correspondence and legal documents necessary for administering the employer's business; â¢ Providing counseling or verbal direction to clients of a home health care service; â¢ Performing public relations for employers' business.

Special note: Hands on training outside of a classroom setting has to be reported separately in the applicable basic classification. For example, a karate instructor is reported in classification 6204, not 6303. For administrative purposes, classification 6303 is divided into the following subclassifications: 6303-00 Outside sales personnel, messengers, N.O.C. 6303-03 Insurance sales personnel and claims adjusters

Duties include teaching people living with physical or developmental disabilities in their own home to manage daily living skills such as caring for themselves, dressing, cooking, shopping, and going to the doctor. Dieticians (also called nutritionists) are referred to patients by their physicians. The dietitian assesses the patient's current nutritional status, and then develops a food plan to meet the patient's needs.
