Employee Injured While On Travel During Motel Sex, Sues Employer.


A WOMAN injured while having sex in a motel room paid for by her employer deserved the same treatment as someone who had slipped in the shower or been bashed, her lawyer has argued.

Barrister Leo Grey told the Federal Court this morning that his case involving s a public servant’s fight for compensation after being injured during a night of passion,  “wasn’t about sex.”
