How Not to Collect Workers’ Comp
The Flakes found an interesting story today about a workers’ compensation case in Australia. A court denied the claim of a woman who was injured while engaging in an intimate act during a business trip.
The woman was reportedly struck by a light fixture during the incident. In a 4 to 1 decision, the high court ruled that the company did not encourage her to participate in “extra curricular” activities during her business trip and shouldn’t be held liable for damages.
The plaintiff’s name has been withheld. Mark and Paul suggested that if her name became public, she would receive several job offers and/or invitations for upcoming business trips.
