An early Merry Christmas to everyone...we wish you seasons greetings, and hope that you and your family have a safe holiday!
For many offices around Des Moines, this will be a week filled with office Christmas parties.
What happens if someone is injured while participating in games associated with the Christmas Office Party?
If the party is a "requirement" of the job, as in, your boss asked you to attend, then then injury would fall under the course and scope of the workers' compensation policy. This holds true if it's a non-employee who gets injured too (a spouse, friend, etc).
If the office is being held at the workplace, then the employer would be liable as well...and it's the responsibility of the employer to make sure that all fun, games, and activities are safely monitored and maintained.
Regardless of when and where the injury happened, you have rights, and it's imperative that you understand all of them. Eric, Randy, and Sarah will go over these rights with you and find a proper course of action to ensure you get the compensation you rightfully deserve.
