Public occupations that involve working with local, state, or federal government agencies are usually very highly sought thanks to higher salaries, more benefits, and better job security compared to many private sector jobs. However, these jobs can come with substantial risks, especially in occupations such as those in the police force or on firefighting crews. These employees are entitled to workers’ compensation, but they may be entitled to additional benefits and compensation as well.

New Jersey state law uses the premises rule and the special assignment rule to determine coverage for workers’ compensation claims. If you sustain your injury while on your employer’s premises, then you are covered by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. If you are injured while engaged in work-related duties (as defined by the New Jersey Revised Statutes Section 34:15-36), then you are also covered. If you were not at work or on work premises, you are likely not covered.
Workers’ compensation insurance is provided by employers to protect workers in the event of a work-related mishap or injury. You usually must forfeit your right to sue your employer for accepting employment and workers’ comp coverage. However, if your employer was found to be guilty of gross misconduct, reckless negligence, or other acts that endangered workers and someone was injured as a result, they may be able to file a lawsuit for damages.
