Not all workplace injuries are cut-and-dry situations that end with simple compensation solutions. If a volunteer or a remote employee is injured while working, this can lead to more complex workers’ comp scenarios. Contact the Law Office of Jeffrey A. Young to schedule a free consultation.
Complex Workers’ Comp Scenarios | Remote Employees
We received a call the other day from a woman who was injured while working out of her home. Her question was if she was covered by Massachusetts workers’ compensation. As long as the injury is in the course of and arising out of the employee’s job, they are covered by Massachusetts workers’ comp. If you have a question about whether or not your injury is covered, depending on where you are, you should contact a workers’ compensation lawyer and discuss it with them.
Complex Workers’ Comp Scenarios | Volunteers
We received an interesting call the other day as to whether or not a volunteer is covered under workers’ compensation. It’s a little bit complicated in Massachusetts. Generally, to be covered under workers’ compensation, you have to be an employee who’s paid. There are some exceptions with volunteers in specific categories, so it’s important that you speak to a workers’ compensation specialist attorney in order to determine if, in fact, your injury while volunteering is covered.
