Lol. This can never happen in Nigeria, for the lawyers to have twisted this case, they are indeed good.

Labour Law is basically about interpretation though

I can understand your pessimism- but Nigerian lawyers are equally good. Whether the court is ready to accept that sort of stretching of the law is another thing entirely.

I think this is more about the Judiciary here.

If you think Nigeria is a crazy place when you hear some things in other countries you will be like Whoa!!

So if the court says he remains on official duty even while ontop the hoe, then by extension the hoe can equally claim she was serving the company in the duration she spent with their representative, Xavier, and thus demand adjustment to her pay for for his service. This is just me trying to think lile French people now. grin


Very Valid argument. grin

I know some wannabes who won't even imagine anything close to this will soon start explaining, trying to form "educated and exposed"

Abeg nobody should explain anything to me, I'm okay. grin

Lol... yes, some people with more educated opinion on the matter will not think it impossible. Interpretation of Laws to accomodate these sort of outcome are plenty - see e.g. R v SoS for Heakth Ex parte Quintavalle in the UK.

You will mostly see this in European courts and US courts. Companies are held responsible for loads of things - no matter how remote- and you will see this as well in the recent popular Johnson & Johnson case in the US.

Truth be told - I have never been a fan of the Purposive interpretation rule myself.

They don't support impunity.

Have you been following the news? You should google search Johnson & Johnson’s recent case.

I think this news article was clear enough. He died while on a company assignment irrespective of whether it was on or off duty.

If he didn't go on that assignment, he wouldn't have met that woman n wouldn't have died.

They have also drawn d line that s#x is just like any other daily activity like eating, jogging, driving or walking. Which means that if he had an heart attack while jogging, it's d same as having an heart attack during s#x.

Very sound judgement devoid of any moral or religious sentiments.

I dey tells you.

One of the qualities of these western countries is that they have created for themselves, an abundance of social institutions and statutes that effectively enhance the quality of life. Africa has a long way to go.

But I think the ruling is unfair. It's gonna cost the company a whole lot. We're talking about years of payments, all for what, one man's enjoyment. I think these companies should be making their employees sign undertakings at the time of employment that'll block rulings like this in the future.

...and you think an undertaking would override the law? The law is supreme always.

Then you should have said baba gods, rather than saying baba god. Currently both of them are in a spiritual cage anyway. https://www.nairaland.com/5123826/time-jehovah-spent-spiritual-prison#77381231

It should na. Take prenuptial agreements for Instance. Once they're being signed, they affect the conditions of divorce should it happen.

[quote author=Kerfuffle post=82103873]The length Western countries will go in supporting impunity is too crazy and nonsensical.

Somebody died while fornicating (or maybe adultery) which is entirely his business and the next thing is to hold the organization he works for responsible. Responsible for WHAT exactly?[/quote if western laws is like that of Yemen Somalia Afghanistan pakistan will any Nigerian die in sea while trying to go there?people go where human is human first of all, that he died while having sex is left for God to jugde him not you to judge or are you Secretary to God?

I hope you read the case wasn't in Nigeria where employees can treat their workers anyhow and make the sign their rights away?
