Intoxication Defense – On March 30, 2017 Iowa became the 19th state to give employers a great defense to a workers’ compensation claim when the injured worker was intoxicated at the time of injury. 85.16 WILLFUL INJURY – INTOXICATION. The newly amended section of the Code then provides that “the burden of proof shall be on the employee to overcome the presumption” by showing he/she was not intoxicated at the time of the injury or that the intoxication did not cause the injury.
