Off-premises employee injured during coffee break is entitled to workers compensation benefits.

In a decision that clearly tilted the scales in favor of injured employees, the Appellate Division in Cooper v. Barnickel Enterprises, Inc., A-1813-08T3 (N.J.Super. 1-13-2010) cited the Personal Comfort Doctrine in deciding that an off-premises employee's injuries suffered during a trip to get coffee are compensable.  The Court, quoting Jumpp v. City of Ventor, 177 N.J. 470 (2003), held [o]ff-premises employees enjoy the same ability to deal with certain basic needs enjoyed by
on-premises employees such as phone calls to babysitters and physicians as well as coffee
and lunch breaks.  Thus, since the employee/Petitioner had his employer's permission to get coffee on his break, he was operating within the scope of his employment, and therefore, the injuries he sustained from his accident were compensable.  FOR MORE INFORMATION ON WORKERS COMPENSATION BENEFITS, CALL LM AT 877- 567-5293.
