  • Hurt an employee at an outing Minnesota

    I read a post regarding an employee getting hurt at an outing, but how does it work if it involves 2 employees? My husband hit another employee with a golf ball at an employee golf outing. Does that fall under his employer or his homeowners insurance?

    It varies by state and I don't know what the laws in Minnesota say. Did you ask your workers comp carrier?
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      We kind of wanted to know what the law says before we ask. My husband has a call into our home insurance provider and is waiting for a response. We both work for the same company and don't want to sound "cheap".

        The safest thing to do is to report it to the workers comp carrier and, if it's not coverable, let THEM deny it.

          Agree that it should be filed with WC.
          I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.

            Thanks! That's what I figured.
