A roofer, who has been drinking beer and falls off the roof, may still be covered by industrial insurance.
If a worker’s claim is denied because the worker was drinking alcohol on the job, the worker should contact a Labor and Industries attorney because drinking on the job does not automatically disqualify a worker from benefits.
