Workers Related Injuries From A Home Office
If you work from home, you should still be covered by workers' compensation if you're ever injured on the job. However, just because you should be doesn't always mean you will be. In actuality, the cases can sometimes get very complex.
When it's obvious you were working at the time of the injury, your claim may be cut and dry; but sometimes it can seem obvious when it's not. These cases sometimes hinge on very tiny details.
What if you used the space for both work and personal reasons?
What if you were on your way home from a business meeting, which is technically also a return to your "office"?
Many people who work from home claim workers' compensation benefits successfully. You just want to be careful and make sure you do everything you can to make your case successful.
Employees can protect themselves by working only from a designated work space and even offering that space for inspection by their employers.
