Scranton Moosic Pennsylvania Work Injury Lawyers- Workers Compensation

Posted by Tom Cummings & filed under DLP Law, Workers Compensation.


In Pennsylvania, courts have determined that a work injury may be sustained in the “course and scope of employment” under Pa. Workers’ Compensation Act where the employee is injured on or off the employer’s premises while actually engaged in furtherance of the employer’s business or affairs. The key issue in assessing a work injury case is whether the employee was “actually engaged in the furtherance of the business or affairs of the employer” which is usually expressed as “in the course and scope of employment”. An activity that does not further the affairs of the employer will take the employee out of the course and scope of employment and may serve as a basis for denial of the workers’ compensation work injury claim.
