If an employee (“telecommuter”) who works primarily from home is injured while performing a task related to his or her job duties, is the injury compensable even though the event occurred in the employee’s home?

 

 

Yes, in Indiana, if an employee works primarily from home and is injured while performing a task related to her job duties, the injury is compensable as long as the employee meets her burden of proving the injury occurred “arising out of and in the course of” her employment.   Please see memo here.
