How To Define Situs?

  1. One of the two tests used to determine whether an employee is eligible as a port or port worker under the Long Noise and Port Workers Compensation Act (LHWCA). To be eligible for LHWCA insurance coverage, employees must prove their position. This site should be used in or above usable waters or in the vicinity. However, working in or near water alone does not qualify employees for LHWCA services, as they must also pass a status test.
