Scope of Employment

An employee's scope of employment is the activities that the employee may properly carry out and that the employer is expected to supervise. Determining scope of employment is important because an employee can collect worker's compensation benefits only for injuries that arise within the scope of employment. It is also important if the employee injures another person. The injured person may recover from the employer only if the employee's actions were within the scope of employment. Disputes about scope of employment arise from actions, such as driving to a work site, that are not under employer supervision, or intentional actions, such as drunken driving or sexual assaults.
