At midnight on October 28, 2018, an employee was working for a party rental empl oyer that was catering a wedding reception at a private home along with cooks, s ervers, and bartenders. The employee is a part-time employee that works the empl oyers catering events. Food service included late night french fries and slider s, which the fryer was shut shortly after 11:00 p.m. At approximately 111:30 p.m ., a coworker emptied the oil from the fryer into a 10 gallon metal soup pot and then asked the employee to carry the pot to the parking area. The cooking oil h ad not cooled and was still at approximately 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Using dish towels on the handles, the employee and a coworker carried the pot from the outs ide patio around the north side of the house toward the parking area in the back . As they rounded the corner of the house and the employee opened a metal gate, condensation from the homes roof dripped into open pot, causing a splash of ho t oil to make contact with the coworkers arm. This caused the coworker to let g o of the pot handle. The pot tipped and spilled hot oil onto the feet and legs o f the employee who sustained severe burns. The employee was taken to a nearby bu rn center, where she was hospitalized and received treatment.
