|Injuries in home offices are workplace accidents
A court ruled that getting injured at home or your home office is a workplace accident. Judges said walking from your bed to your desk in another room is a commute to work. Any injuries you get on that journey is eligible for compensation. A rule was made in a case where a man slipped down his stairs from his bedroom to his home office and broke his back. The court said the "first morning journey from bed to the home office is an insured work route".
