Liability coverage for teleworkers

Teleworkers must address issues of their own personal safety to be effective while teleworking from a home office or other alternative worksite. Government employees causing or suffering work-related injuries and/or damages at the alternative worksite are covered by the Military Personnel and Civilian Employees Claims Act, the Federal Tort Claims Act, or the Federal Employees' Compensation Act (workers' compensation), as appropriate.  

Managers should review the Alternate Worksite and Safety Evaluation with teleworkers to ensure compliance and should immediately investigate any reports of accidents or injuries on the job.
