For example, we have many volunteer fire departments throughout the state. Firefighters with some of these departments are considered city employees, because they receive a "per call fee" and/or are covered by a pension plan, even thought they do not draw a salary and they support themselves through other means. It sounds crass and cruel, but yes, we do not cover students paying tuition to the school in order to attend a lab class. Paid undergraduate lab assistants, however, are another matter. We also do not extend protection to inmates in correctional institutions, whether working in the prison industries or not. (Just in case anyone was wondering.) - Diane Amell, MNOSHA
