Halloween & the Office Halloween Party

As we inch closer to Halloween, more and more offices will begin planning and throwing Halloween parties.

But....

What happens if an employee gets injured during the party? Are they covered under workers' compensation guidelines?

The short answer is...yes. Generally speaking, if the injury was related to work or occurred at the workplace, it'll be compensated by the employer, regardless of the employee's fault for the injury or accident.

For example, if there's an office-wide apple bobbing contest...and you bang your head on the bucket...you'd be covered. If there's an office pumpkin carving event, and you slice your hand by accident...you would also be covered.

No matter the severity of the injury, it is important that ever worker know his or her rights. Don't assume your employer will let you know of all of your options. 99% of the time, your employer will just let you know of the options that are most convenient...for them. They'll try and sweep your injury under the rug and hope that you don't try to pursue your compensation any further.

We won't let that happen. Call Eric, Randy, and Sarah at 515-225-4485, or visit Loneylaw.com. We will sit down with you and go over your claim with you. We won't speak "legalese" to you either...we'll make sure you are comfortable with every part of the claim. Together, we will find the best route to ensure you the compensation you fully deserve.
