The employer or its insurance carrier does not have to pay worker’s compensation benefits if a worker is injured during a voluntary recreational activity or program, even if the employer promoted, sponsored, or financially supported the recreational activity or program.  This rule is true as long as the worker is relieved of and is not performing any duties of their job when the accident occurs.  (Sections 8-40-201(8), 8-40-301(1), C.R.S.).
