Recreational waiver

Many times employers are cautious about having recreational or fitness activities at their workplaces because of the potential of an employee getting injured and filing a workers' compensation claim.

It's BWC's policy that an injury or disability incurred during voluntary participation in an employer sponsored recreation or fitness activity is not compensable if the injured worker signed a waiver of the right to workers' compensation benefits prior to engaging in the recreation or fitness activity.
