The issue was whether injuries sustained in off-hours while on a business trip should be compensated under the Safety Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 1988.
The employee was not engaged in serious or wilful misconduct, the injury was not intentionally self inflicted and she was at the hotel in the course of her employment. She was therefore entitled to be compensated.
