A court in Paris has recognized the incident as an accident at work, which means that the relatives of the deceased will get compensation from the employer. The company tried to prove that the employee was not at work when he decided to spend time with the woman he first met. But, as the judge confirmed, according to French legislation, the responsibility for any injuries and accidents during a working trip lies with the employer. “Like shower or dinner” this story has been lasted since 2013. The man known as Xavier H, worked as an engineer at TSO, a rail service company with an office near Paris. He died on a business trip as a result of “extramarital affairs with a complete stranger in 2013,” as they called what happened at TSO. The State Insurance Company considered the death of Xavier H as a workplace accident, i.e. the employer had to pay compensation. Insurers specify that the company is responsible for its employee while on business trip, even if he is not working at this moment, but is engaged in ordinary household affairs. The insurance company claims that sex on a business trip is just an ordinary everyday activity, same as shower or dinner. TSO was outraged by this decision and challenged it in court, but the appeal court in Paris took the side of the insurers. “An employee is entitled to social protection for the entire period of a business trip, regardless of the circumstances,” the court concluded.
