Employee recieves workers compensation from workplace outing injury

Posted on June 16th, 2010 No Comments

The Ohio Court of Appeals has upheld a decision from a lower court that an employee that was injured while participating in horseplay at a work outing should recieve workers compensation.

The employee was an account manager for Coca-Cola who attended a mandatory work function that was a kick-off event for the release of the company's new product. All employees were encouraged to participate in canoing down a three-mile stretch.

While leaving the canoe and walking back to the vehicles, two employees grabbed the other employee and tried to push him into the water as a joke. They were unsuccessful and they slammed the man to the ground causing him to injure his neck. The court found that if the employer knew of the horseplay, then the man should recieve workers compensation.
