I had an employee acquire an infection while on a business trip. He claims that it is from a dirty hotel. He had an open wound which he said was reoccurring related to stress from the job (a before hire pathogen which causes lesions). This was part of his job function which he was hired to do(traveling sales). He has a blood sugar problem which makes the lesions heal slowly and open for infection. Will I be liable? He has not turned it in, but plans too. So I have not seen the Dr. notes to see if the secondary infection was caused before going to the hospital.
