Remote Employees and Workers' Compensation: What Companies Should Know
The fact that employees are not physically at their work site does not mean that the potential for workers’ compensation claims is eliminated. In some ways, there is even more of a risk that an employee may be injured because the company cannot supervise how they do their work to the same extent they would if they were on a work site. Even with detailed instructions about work safety, employees may still put themselves at risk for injury. Thanks to the rise in remote work, there may be more complex issues surrounding workers' compensation claims now compared to when most employees did their work at a work site.
