Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
hi my name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help. Generally, yes, especially if any form of manual labor is involved (which can include everything from delivering or carrying pamphlets to driving your boss to a meeting.)Interns, both paid and unpaid, are usually required by law to be covered byworker's compensation insurance by the employer. Thus, these interns could have a claim if they were hurt while on the job and working within their scope of employment. does that make sense?
if they file a claim under workman's comp it will be evaluated by the workcomp board and they will determine if the claim should fall udner work comp.
do you have any further questions or concerns? when you are satisfied i would greatly appreciate a positive rating!
