"Going and Coming" Rule Gets a Little More Focused, Florida Court Decides

A Florida appeals court has put a fine point on the still-evolving “going and coming rule” in workers’ compensation law.

The 1st District Court of Appeal found that a man injured on his way to a jobsite was not due benefits, even though he was carrying some work supplies at the time of the automobile accident and had been partly paid for his gas expenses.

The take-away for employers and insurers may be that the injury was not compensable because the electrician was non-salaried, was not fully compensated for his gas money, did not transport large amount of materials, and was en route from home to his first job of the day – not between jobs – when he was involved in the collision.
