Ordinarily, an employer is not liable for injuries an employee suffers on the way to or from work.  However, under the premises line rule, the commute ends and the employee becomes entitled to Workers Compensation benefits for injury suffered once the employee has entered the employer’s premises.  Here, the court held that plaintiff, a UC Irvine employee, had not yet left the university’s premises, when she suffered an injury while biking toward home but still within the UCI campus.  Accordingly, she was entitled to Workers Compensation benefits but could not sue the university in tort.  See Smith v. Industrial Accident Com. (1941) 18 Cal.2d 843 (holding that an entire island of several hundred acres, all owned by the employer, were the employer’s premises for purposes of the premises line rule).
