Am I eligible for workers’ compensation if I am hurt while working from home?

In many cases, a work-related injury that occurs while an individual is working from home can be covered by workers’ compensation if the injury occurs within the scope of employment. For example, many of the conditions that commonly accompany office work (neck, back, and wrist injuries, migraines, and other stress or repetitive motion injuries) can happen in a home office too.

As working from home becomes more common, many individuals who telecommute do not realize they have rights if they are injured at home. If this has happened to you, a workers’ compensation attorney can help determine if you might be entitled to benefits.
