Is There Anything Duct Tape Can’t Do?

I’m on fire?

Here is a Delaware WCB case, that discusses the jurisdiction of the Court to hear a case of horseplay related injury that occurred in the course of employment.

The horseplay causing the injury involved duct tape. The Court states:

In sum, the duct-taping prank in this case was executed quickly without a
significant abandonment by Appellees of their duties.

You guess the rest. The duct taping incident was in keeping with the general workplace atmosphere and was not out of the scope of these fellows’ regular employment.

Apparently these pranksters had also set a napping employee’s pants on fire.
