If you are asking: May an employer may be held liable to injuries to their employee, who was injury while on the way to work, during an ice storm? If that is your question, I do not know the answer. I suspect they have no liability at all, and, if there is any liability, it would be under workers comp law. But, this type of injury is the type of case that most PERSONAL INJURY lawyers would be glad to discuss with you, free of charge. This how they make their money. I suggest you contact one of them for some free advice that you may rely upon.
