Dear All,
Help me understand if the employee met with an accident while going home will it be considered under WC policy as accident arising out of the course of employment?
If yes a judgement regarding the same would be helpful.

On duty accident,off duty accident,accident while commuting for duty from home to place of work,or from place of work to home.
Accident while commuting to any place for the purpose of duty during regular working hours or during off hours or travelling long distances for the purpose of duty.
All above stated reasons states that if it can proved that if the accident was due ot reasons of duty or attributed to duty shall call for full compensation.

Both ways it can be interpreted. Different courts passed different judgement, depending on the circumstances of how the accident occurred. The workmen after the working hours leaves the Factory premises on his way to home, he is exposed to public hazard also, and any accident by /on vehicle the compensation can be claimed based on Motor Vehicle Insurance Act. Notional extension of working hours( from Factory to Home and to Factory) could be established, depending on his regular and short route, and establishing the fact he did not attend to nay personal work on this hours, and not exposed to any public hazard. If the workmen met with an accident while travelling in company's vehicle then the accident to be considered while on duty. Which ever beneficial to the workmen could be filed for claim of compensation. Mostly compensation decided depends on the circumstances.
