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 Kansas, depending on the facts and circumstances that gave rise to the accident and injury, an injury that occurs at home could be compensable under the Kansas Workers’ Compensation Act. Please see memo here.
