French company liable after employee dies during sex on business trip

A French company has been found liable for the death of an employee who had a cardiac arrest while having sex with a stranger on a business trip.
A Paris court ruled that his death was an industrial accident and that the family was entitled to compensation.
The firm had argued the man was not carrying out professional duties when he joined a guest in her hotel room.
But under French law an employer is responsible for any accident occurring during a business trip, judges said.
The man, named as Xavier X, was working as an engineer for TSO, a railway services company based near Paris.
He died at a hotel during a trip to central France in 2013, as a result of what the employer called "an extramarital relationship with a perfect stranger".
The company challenged a decision by the state health insurance provider to regard the death as a workplace accident.
The provider defended its position by insisting that sexual activity was normal, "like taking a shower or a meal".
In its ruling, the Paris appeals court upheld this view.
An employee on a business trip is entitled to social protection "over the whole time of his mission" and regardless of the circumstances, it said.

Mixed Feelings.

It's better than if the French Court decided that heterosexual intercourse was an act of an oppressive majority and therefore not covered, whereas gay sex would be.

Nelson Rockefeller also died, while poking a secretary on the job.

It's ok.

Most of my sexual encounters were industrial accidents, too!

social protection

'social protection' paid by private entities is just as bad as private entities socializing their externalities.

Something to ponder: If the guy impregnated the broad while being on the company's clock would that meant that his employer is responsible for the child support?
