Is Workplace Violence Covered Under Workers' Compensation?

What happens when someone is injured due to violence that occurs between co-workers? Are injuries sustained as a result of this violence compensable under Nebraska workers' compensation law? The answer, like many answers to legal questions, is it depends. The fact that you can prove you were assaulted and injured on the job does not automatically mean you are entitled to benefits. It is always the injured workers' burden to prove he or she suffered injuries because of an accident arising out of and in the course of employment. An injured worker must also prove the accident resulted from risks arising from within the scope or sphere of the worker's job. The general rule is that, for this to be covered under workers' compensation, you must show that the violence grew out of or was connected to the relationship as fellow employees or acts in the performance of work, you may not be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
