FIXED PLACE OF WORK OUTSIDE THE HOME

Statistics Directorate    
French Equivalent: Travailleurs ayant un lieu de travail fixe en dehors du domicile

Definition:
Persons with a fixed place of work outside the home includes those who do not have a fixed place of work but who report to a fixed address at the beginning of their work period (for example, bus drivers, airline pilots and stewards), including individuals who travel to work, on a regular basis, across the border to a neighbouring country.

Persons working at changing sites, for example, in construction, should be recorded at the location of their current worksite rather than the address of their employer’s place of business, if appearance at this site will be required for at least one week.
