Workers’ Compensation Hickory: Employee Working Two Jobs
Workers’ Compensation for the Employee Working Two Jobs
The modern economy has brought about an interesting change in the way people ensure they have an income: Many workers have been forced to take two part-time jobs rather than having one, full-time position. While this helps solve an income challenge, it presents potential confusion on the topic of workers’ compensation: What’s my coverage if I am injured on the job?
Perhaps you are like so many others today, and you have opted for two part-time jobs. What would you do if you experience a work injury on the job? Are you familiar with how a workman’s comp claim is handled when you are injured at one job and end up needing to miss work days at both places of employment? It is important to know that the Workers’ Compensation Act does not require insurance companies to pay for time missed at both jobs—only the position at which the injury occurred.
