Petition Title Expanded definition of full-time manager
Date Filed 11/4/2002   
Petitioner Vanessa Harris 
Petitioner's Request

To amend regulations to allow a funeral service licensee who is the manager of a funeral establishment to also hold a full-time job elsewhere.

Agency's Plan

The Board has referred the petitioner's request to the Legislative/Regulatory Committee, which will meet at 9:00 a.m. on April 22, 2003 in Conference Room 1 at 6603 West Broad Street, Richmond, VA to consider whether to recommend amendments to the statutory and regulatory requirements for a full-time manager.

Comment Period Ended 5/13/2003
Agency Decision Take no action    
Response Date 11/20/2003
Agency Decision Summary

Section 54.1-2810 of the Code of Virginia requires a licensed funeral establishment to have a full time, licensed manager in charge. In its regulations, the Board has interpreted "full time" to mean working 40 hours a week at the funeral establishment. Given the provision in law that a manager must be engaged full time at the establishment, the Board determined that the 40-hour/week requirement was reasonable.
