The ABC over the weekend had the thrilling news that the world famous public servant who injured herself having sex on a work trip and claimed compo is having her payment challenged in the highest court in the land:
Comcare initially allowed the claim, but then reversed the decision.
After a long legal battle, the full bench of the Federal Court eventually ruled the woman was entitled to the claim because she was injured at accommodation where her employer had encouraged her to stay.
Comcare is challenging that, asking the High Court to clarify whether the Federal Court’s ruling was sufficient in determining what falls within the course of employment.
Now everyone who likes a bedroom romp should be hoping the High Court rules for Comcare. Otherwise your personal life will be getting a lot more employer regulation.
