Sex Injuries 'a Work Compo Claim'

This was on Yahoo this morning.

A public servant who was injured during sex while away on a work trip is claiming compensation, saying she is entitled to a payout because the injury was sustained during the course of her employment.

News Ltd newspapers report that the woman was injured when a glass light fitting above the bed fell as she was having sex with a man in 2007.

She suffered injuries to her nose, mouth and a tooth, and "a consequent psychiatric injury".

The woman had been sent to a country town to stay the night ahead of a meeting early the next day.

News Lt report her lawyers argue that she should be entitled to compensation because she was "at a particular place" at which her employer "induced or encouraged" her to spend the night.

Her initial claim was rejected and that decision upheld by the Administrative Appeals Tribunal, but the case is now with the Federal Court.
ComCare, the Federal Government's workplace safety authority, said the sexual activity had nothing to do with the woman's work but her lawyers argue it is the same as activities such as serious drinking or socialising, injuries from which have been the basis for successful compensation claims.

That would be an epic reason to get a handicapped parking sticker.

Actually while strange she might have a legitimate claim as long as she didn't go to the meeting ahead of time. I used to travel extensively and we were considered on the clock when we traveled.

Aus. Woman Elegible For Workers Comp. After Sex Mishap on Bus. Trip

Did it really need to be mentioned she was having sex when the light fell on her face???? Also, can someone really be that depressed/distraught after something like this????



CANBERRA, Australia -- An Australian court has ruled that a bureaucrat who was injured while having sex on a business trip is eligible for worker's compensation benefits.

The Full Bench of the Federal Court ruled Dec. 13 in favor of the woman, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, and rejecting the appeal of the federal government's insurer.

The woman was hospitalized after being injured in 2007 during sex with a male friend while staying in a motel in the town of Nowra, 160 kilometers (100 miles) south of her hometown of Sydney.

During the sex, a glass light fitting was torn from its mount above the bed and landed on her face, injuring her nose and mouth. She later suffered depression and was unable to continue working for the government.

Her claim for worker's compensation for her physical and psychological injuries was initially approved by government insurer Comcare, then rejected after further investigation.

An administrative tribunal agreed with Comcare that her injuries were not suffered in the course of her employment, saying the government had not induced or encouraged the woman's sexual conduct. The tribunal also found the sex was "not an ordinary incident of an overnight stay" such as showering, sleeping and eating.

That ruling was overturned in the Federal Court in 2012, when Judge John Nicholas rejected the tribunal's findings that the sex had to be condoned by the government if she were to qualify for compensation.

"If the applicant had been injured while playing a game of cards in her motel room, she would be entitled to compensation even though it could not be said that her employer induced her to engage in such activity," Nicholas wrote in his judgment in favor of the woman receiving compensation.

In the Full Bench decision upholding Nicholas' decision, Judges Patrick Keane, Robert Buchanan and Mordy Bromberg agreed last week that the government's views on the woman having sex in her motel room were irrelevant.


"No approval, express or implied, of the respondent's conduct was required," they said.

It is not yet clear how much compensation the woman will receive. She was in her 30s at the time of the accident.

Comcare was on Monday considering an appeal to the High Court, Australia's highest legal authority, Comcare spokesman Russ Street said.

"The issue is a significant one," Street said in a statement. "Workers need to be clear about their entitlements and employers should have an understanding of their responsibilities and how to support their staff."
