Almost every business, and the individuals who work in them, are included in this settlement program. In fact, the list of eligible businesses is literally hundreds of pages long. As long as your business is located in either a gray, red, yellow or purple area on this map, you are automatically included.
Many people erroneously assume that if they are not employed in the hospitality, tourism, fishing or recreation fields, then they cannot file claims. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Tradespeople of all kinds can participate. This includes electricians, plumbers, carpenters, and all others involved in the construction industry. Professionals such as veterinarians, dentists, architects, accountants (even attorneys) are eligible. Non-profit groups such a religious organizations, charities, foundations and museums are included, as are salespeople of all kinds. Farmers and all manner of agricultural concerns are eligible. The list goes on and on.
The only business types excluded from participating are finance and banking related companies, insurance entities, casinos, real estate developers, certain oil and gas concerns, defense contractors and governmental entities. Every other type of business, and the employees who work for them, should investigate the merits of their claim.
