How does working from home affect my workers’ comp case?
Recently, someone from South Carolina called me and explained to me that they work from home and that they also have to work traveling to and from places in order to do their job. They were seriously injured, they said, and might need surgery. When they turned to their employer to cover their medical bills and their lost wages, their employer denied the claim and told them, since they weren’t working at the site where they work, their claim could not be valid. This is simply false. In South Carolina, if you’re performing work away from the worksite, and the activity is designed to benefit your employer and further their business, then you are entitled to be covered by the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act. If an employer is telling you these things, your employer is simply trying to trick you, and that’s a red flag that you need an experienced South Carolina workers’ compensation attorney to assess your case and fight for you and take your case to court if necessary. Don’t let this happen to you. Contact our office and let us fight for you.
