At-home workers are entitled to workers' comp - even if they're injured during activities only marginally related to their job. A sales rep for an auto supply company was seriously injured after he slipped while spreading salt on his icy driveway. He said he was trying to make it easier for the delivery of a business package. The Utah Court of Appeals said he's entitled to workers' comp because the injury "arose out of and in the course of" his employment. (Ae Clevite Inc. v. Labor Commission, No. 990218-CA, Utah Ct. of App., 2000)
