5. Do I have to be injured at my workplace to be covered by workers' compensation?
No. As long as your injury is job-related, it's covered. For example, you will be covered if you are injured while traveling on business, doing a work-related errand, or even attending a required business-related social function. For more information on what counts as a job-related injury (and what doesn't), see Nolo's article Workers' Compensation: Is Your Injury or Illness Work-Related?
