Handling Claims for Injuries Sustained While Using a Mobile Device

June 7

Gain a better understanding of mobile device monitoring and legal limitations that can limit risks of Workers’ Compensation.

Today’s mobile economy is increasingly changing the workplace landscape. Where work was once completed within a defined space and during assigned hours, it may now as easily be performed at any time of day, whether from home, in a car, while on vacation, or walking down a busy city sidewalk. This state of flux has compelled courts to reconsider when someone is in the course and scope of employment, and has left employers and their insurance carriers seeking means to limit claims exposure. This information will explain the impact of mobile devices on the course and scope of employment. It will inform you of existing federal regulations and state laws governing distracted driving, and explain the importance of creating clear and comprehensive employer policies limiting mobile device use. The importance of employee training, policy implementation and enforcement will also be discussed. We will review mobile device monitoring and tracking options, as well as legal limitations. Finally, you will gain an understanding of how employer policies, mobile monitoring and mobile device use can work together to limit workers’ compensation risk.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to identify the ways that policies, procedures and mobile device monitoring limits claims exposure.
  • You will be able to recognize the advantages and pitfalls of allowing employees to bring their own mobile devices to work.
  • You will be able to explain the importance of clear and comprehensive employer policies limiting risk from mobile device use.
  • You will be able to discuss the changing landscape of the workplace in a mobile economy, and its impact on course and scope analyses in the Workers’ Compensation context.
