There’s a guy who’s only been identified as Xavier who was an engineer for a railroad company from Paris. And back in February of 2013, he was on a business trip to France.
It seems that even though he was married, he met a local woman and they went up to his hotel room to get-it-on. However, the whole affair was just a bit much for his heart and Xavier dropped dead of a heart attack during the encounter.
The courts have been dealing with this case for years as the man’s wife has been fighting to have this classified as a workplace accident. That’s correct, there’s been a six-year debate over whether having an affair on a business trip counts.
Well, an appeals court just issued the final ruling and they say yes, this counts. The reason this is great news for the man’s wife is that she will get a payout of up to 80% of his salary every year until he would’ve hit retirement age, and then a share of his pension after that.
Not a bad consolation prize for her.
