Workers’ Comp Goes to the Dogs

The recent winner in Claims Journal’s Strange Claims Contest has been announced.  The real-life claim recounted by the winning contestant involved the owner of an auto repair shop who always brought his dog to work. One day the dog suffered a leg injury while he was “at work.”  Since the dog was “employed” as a watchdog, the shop owner submitted a workers’ comp claim on behalf of the dog. 

We can only assume Fido failed to meet his burden of pwoof.  😉
