This article surveys the existing law of Tennessee applicable to the problems of determining what is covered employment and what constitutes a compensable injury. The survey indicates no radical differences between the law of Tennessee and that of most American jurisdictions,although there are a few troublesome problems in particular areas, such as the "Act of God" and "positional risk" cases.
