Ohio Court Finds Woman Who Was Injured In A Parking Lot Does Not Have A Compensable Workers’ Compensation Claim

In Foster v. Bur. of Workers’ Comp., 2013-Ohio-4075, an employee slipped and fell in a parking lot before work began, injuring her back.  The employee had a fixed place of employment, was not required by the employer to park in any particular parking lot, and had the option to park in a number of different areas.  The employee filed a workers’ compensation claim, which was denied under coming and going rule because the employer lacked control of the parking lot.  Read the case here.
