Holding Employers Responsible
Employers are only obligated to compensate you for your injury if it qualifies
as a workplace injury.
Considerations made when determining if this is the case include:
- Did the injury take place at a company cafeteria or involve your employer
in some way?
- If alcohol was involved, was it during a work-sponsored event such as a
- Was a preexisting condition exacerbated?
- If a mental condition exists, was it sustained on the job or as a result
of the job?
In addition to being required to have some form of workers’ compensation
insurance, employers must also post notices in convenient locations easily
accessible to employees which contain information regarding their rights.
