What are some injuries and jobs that are not covered by workers' compensation?

Injuries and Jobs Not Covered By Workers' Compensation

There are some on-the-job injuries that are not covered by workers' compensation. These include self-inflicted injuries (such as cutting yourself on purpose while working), injuries or accidents that happened while you were not on the job or acting in a way that was against company policy, or if you were committing a crime while you received the injury. There are also some jobs that are not covered under workers' comp, because the employers are not required to carry workers' compensation insurance. These include farm workers, self-employed workers, domestic employees working in others' homes, and business owners.
