Am I still entitled to workers’ compensation benefits if I am working but not on my employer's premises?

As long as you are engaged in activities that further the business interests of your employer, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. For example, if you are injured while running an errand for your employer or while participating in a company-sponsored athletic event, you are entitled to benefits. On the other hand, injuries occurring while commuting to or from work often are not covered by the Workers’ Compensation Act, depending on the premise circumstances. Since there are many circumstances where even such injuries may be covered, it is essential that you notify your employer of the injury.
