WCA is applicable to every trade /business/industry. However if an employee is covered under ESI he can not get benifit under WCA. To rest of employees including managerial staff WCA will be applicable.

Well said by Sri Harbhajan. WCA applies to factories, mines, docks, construction establishments, plantations, oilfields and other establishments listed in Schedule II and III of the act but excludes establishments covered by the ESI Act.
