  • Salary worker hurt at warehouse on a non-working day. Hawaii

    We are a painting contractor that has normal shop hours of Monday through Friday but on occassions may have to work on weekends. An employee who is a salary employee came to the warehouse on a Sunday and fell off a ladder while grabbing paint. He claims he was in the shop checking his e-mail and on his way out decided he need paint. We have no idea why he needed the paint because none of the current jobs called for that particular paint and there was no job's going on that day. We are speculating that he may have needed the paint for personal use. Anyway. My question is............... Is the employee covered under workers comp just because he came in to check his e-mail? Is he covered even if he is not required to come in on Sundays?

    Generally speaking, yes and yes. Just submit the claim to your carrier. They will decide.
