As amended in 1984, the Longshoremen’s and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act excepted from the definition of “employee” “individuals employed by a club, camp, recreational operation, restaurant, museum, or retail outlet,” whether for-profit or not-for-profit, so long as the individiuals are covered by a state worker’s compensation scheme.  This decision holds that general federal admiralty and maritime law follows this statutory lead.  So a club worker’s sole remedy is worker’s compensation under California’s workers comp law.  The worker cannot sue his employer for negligence or unseaworthiness under general admiralty law.
