Travel that is incident to the employment cannot be excluded from the course and scope of the employment by the ordinary going and coming rule, held a Maryland appellate court recently. Accordingly, it vacated a decision that had denied workers’ compensation benefits to a firefighter who sustained injuries in a motorcycle accident as he was en route from a work-related activity, engaging in physical training, to a site where he was to engage in another work-related act, picking up work-related mail. Citing Larson’s Workers’ Compensation Law, the court held that this was no going and coming case; the firefighter was not engaged in a commute. Instead his actions were part of his employment.
