Dying on the job

France's employment laws have often been seen as ludicrously generous to employees, but this latest court decision really does take them to a new level of absurdity. (Incidentally, apologies for the DM link - I read the story in The Times, but it's paywalled).

I too read that in The Times yesterday and had to check the date. Had it been 1 April I would have taken it in the spirit of a joke, but since it was not I expect we can see this sort of thing being introduced by Corbyn if he ever gets the chance.

Seems to me that the employer is clearly trying to wriggle out of its responsibilities, as the man was clearly "on the job" :D

Since the chap's death was regarded as work-related injury, does it follow that had he survived he could legitimately put the young lady's charge* on expenses?
But this was France...

* assuming she was a 'working girl' and not an enthusiastic amateur
