When federal workers are injured on the job

Under the Federal Employees' Compensation Act, federal workers who are injured on the job in Pennsylvania may be entitled to certain benefits. However, benefits may be withheld if the employee was intoxicated at the time of the injury or took willful action that led to the injury. A federal employee who becomes injured while on the job may first request to receive regular pay for 45 days.

Workplace safety for home employees

Pennsylvania residents who are exploring their options to work at home may choose to review some of the requirements and agreements implemented around America to protect the safety of telecommuters and other at-home workers. In cases such as these, the home will be considered the workplace. Safety during the hours of employment will still be critical, and workers hurt while employed and carrying out their duties at home may still be eligible for workers' compensation.
