An injury does not need to occur “at work” in order for it to be the basis of a compensable Workers’ Compensation claim. Workers’ Compensation benefits are appropriate whenever an injury “arises out of and in the course of” a person’s employment. This does not limit where an compensable injury may occur.
This means that injuries occurring while working from home can be Workers’ Compensation claims.
This is important to know as many workers transition to working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss an injury you have sustained while working from home.
