State workers are by no means immune to the injury accidents that affect every other office workers in Wyoming. They may trip over torn carpeting. Or they could slip on the snow-covered steps leading into the office. Government workers certainly suffer the same aches and pains associated with a poorly designed workstation. Just because you work in a government job does not mean that Wyoming workers’ compensation does not apply to you too.
