    TEXT VERSION OF SLIDE:

    Title: 1904.5 - Travel Status
    Type: Text Slide
    Content:

    • An injury or illness that occurs while an employee is on travel status is work-related if it occurred while the employee was engaged in work activities in the interest of the employer
    • Home away from home
    • Detour for personal reasons is not work-related
    Speaker Notes:

    When employees are traveling, an injury or illness that occurs while the employee is engaged in work activities for the employer is considered work-related.

    Travel to and from customer contacts and entertaining or being entertained at the direction of the employer are work-related. For example, if an employee falls in the airport while on a business trip, the case is work-related.

    When an employee checks into a hotel or motel, he/she establishes a "home away from home." While theyre in that home away from home status, cases that occur are not work-related. For example, if an employee slips in the hotel shower and is injured, the case is not work-related.

    Likewise, if the employee takes a side trip while in transit for a vacation, to go sightseeing or shopping, etc., and is injured, the case is not work-related.
