However you can find a reference under section 31-275 where they define an “Employee” as 9 (B) “Employee” shall not be construed to include: (vi) Any person who is not a resident of this state but is injured in this state during the course of his employment, unless such person 1. works for an employer who has a place of employment or facility located in this state at which such person spends at least 50% of his employment time, or 2. works for an employer pursuant to an employment contract to be performed primarily in this state.” Compliance of workers compensation laws varies from state to state and it is important for an employer with workers performing duties in other states to be aware of the specific state rules that govern their coverage.
