Regular commute

As a general rule, an injury during an applicant’s “regular commute” is not compensable. Exceptions include:

  • Special missions
  • Zone of danger
  • Where the employer pays for travel
  • On-call employment
  • Where the employer provides vehicle for work
  • Where the job site is not fixed or the job requires driving from one site to another
  • Where the employer requires that employee transports tools or materials
