Employer Not Liable For Employees After-Hours Activities At A Construction Site

September 29, 2011

In Isaacs v. Lipsky Enterprises, the plaintiff, a school district employee, decided to tour the new library after work. The library was still under construction and the plaintiff tripped on debris, sustaining injuries. The court held that the employer's duty to provide a safe work place ended once the work-day was over. The court further dismissed the claims against the general contractor, who had taken reasonable stepped to cordon off the area.
