Hurt While Trying To Stop A Crime At Work? Don't Expect Workers' Comp To Pay Without A Fight
Does your company have a specific policy about how to handle the situation when a crime is being committed right in front of you, during business hours and on the business property? Don't be surprised if the company policy is "don't get involved." You may be expected to dial 911 and then stand idle. Even if company policy isn't explicit, don't expect your company to easily pay your workers' comp claim if you get hurt on the job while trying to stop a crime.
