Home Workers Compensation Claims
In many circumstances agency and home workers have exactly the same right to claim personal injury compensation as any other employee. Uncertainty may arise however as to the party against whom compensation should be claimed. This is likely to vary depending upon the circumstances of an individual accident or injury.
The law imposes certain duties upon an employer that is providing work to be undertaken by an individual in their home. This is to ensure that it can be undertaken in a safe manner. Such duties extend to ensuring that the work station is suitable from a health and safety perspective and that where necessary, safe and suitable work equipment and personal protective equipment is provided.
A risk assessment should be undertaken in relation to all work activities undertaken at home and it should identify the appropriate steps necessary to reduce any associated risks. Further information regarding home working is provided by the Health & Safety Executive.
