Employer liability for commuter accident in China

This memorandum discusses the various potential employer liabilities for accidents that occur while employees are traveling to and from work. In general, where the employer is not at fault, China’s work-related injury insurance fund will cover a portion of the costs associated with an employee commuter accident. In a no fault situation, the employer will not be liable for any additional injury-related costs. However, if the employer is at fault, the employer may incur negligence related liabilities.
