Are There Any Exceptions To The General Rule That When Employees Are Injured At Work, They Receive Worker's Compensation?

view our Practice areas

State workers' compensation laws do provide exceptions to the rule that workers injured on the job are entitled to compensation. Each state is different, but the exceptions may include:

  • Denied compensation in those cases in which the employee's injury results from his or her attempted suicide or homicide.
  • Denial of compensation to employees injured during the commission of crimes while on the job.
  • Dis-allowance of compensation for injuries at work that are the result of employees who are injured while engaged in unauthorized horseplay on the job, for those leaving the employers' premises, or for other deviations from employment without the employers' express approval for deviation.
  • Reduction of benefits in some states if the injury was caused by an incident in which the employee failed or refused to use safety appliances provided by the employer.
