MEMORANDUM FOR: REGIONAL ADMINISTRATORS FROM: LEO CAREY, DIRECTOR Office of Field Programs SUBJECT: Appeal's Court Decision
Attached is decision of the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit vacating a decision by the Review Commission which involved the manufacture of modular housing units. The issue was whether or not the employer was engaged in manufacturing or construction. The Court decided this was appropriately manufacturing since it wasn't done as part of or on a construction site.
