Question: For purposes of federal workers' compensation, how is "performance of duty" established?

Answer: Usually, the injury or illness must occur on the employer's premises during working hours while the employee is performing assigned duties or engaging in an activity which is reasonably associated with the employment. Workers who perform assigned duties away from the employer's premises are also covered.
