What does it mean to be on the job?
In order to file workers' compensation claims, many employees need to be injured while on the job. This means that the employee is at a qualified worksite or performing a qualified working duty.
In most cases, an employee's contract will specify the terms of what it means to be on the job. However, employees may work in situations, which are not specifically identified in the contract.
For instance, an employee could be called to do an offsite job. In this setting, the employee may be technically on the job and be allowed to receive compensation.
