Am I Eligible For Workers’ Comp?
The idea of “work-related” seems simple, but seemingly subtle issues surrounding an injury can result in the injury not qualifying for workers’ compensation benefits.
For example, if an employee is injured picking up lunch on his or her break, his or her injury likely does not qualify as “work-related.” However, if he or she is injured on his or her lunch break in the company’s cafeteria, the injury may be considered “work-related.”
An employee traveling on his or her way to work will likely not be covered, but an employee on a business trip likely will be covered. Likewise, injuries that take place at company-sponsored events are likely to be considered work-related.
