March Brain Trust
Alicia McDonnell from Employer Solutions Law discusses “In and Out of the Course of Employment”
One critical aspect of workers’ compensation coverage is determining whether an employee’s injury or illness occurred “in the course of employment.” This determination can impact whether an Employer will be charged with an employee’s illness or injury. This training provides an overview of Washington state’s general approach to workers’ compensation coverage, including how it defines “acting in the course of employment.” It also discusses some common scenarios in which an employee may or may not be considered to be acting in the course of employment. Guidance will also be provided on what steps employers can take to get claims rejected.
