This discussion on COVID-19 is from a workers’ compensation liability perspective, focusing on work-from-home injury risks and prevention. 

  • If an employee contracts COVID-19, is it a work-related injury? 
  • With so many employees working from home, what injuries at home are work-related and require payment of workers’ compensation benefits? 
  • If an employee is quarantined due to potential contamination is that compensable?
  • What if a work-at-home employee works in another state?
  • What steps should employers and insurers take to investigate reported work-at-home injuries
  • What steps should employers and insurers take to prevent work-at-home injuries?
