Air Canada employee who fell on stairs in her home eligible for worker’s compensation: Judge
A Quebec labour judge has ruled that an Air Canada call centre employee who hurt herself going down a staircase while working from home suffered a workplace injury and merited worker’s compensation. The ruling, handed down by Quebec administrative Judge Philippe Bouvier earlier this month, seems to be the first in the province to confirm that an injury that occurs during work hours in the home of an employee teleworking due to COVID-19 is eligible for worker’s compensation, according to experts. In September 2020, Alexandria Gentile-Patti, an Air Canada customer service agent, was working her regular shift from her home office on the second floor when she disconnected from her computer for her lunch break. But while heading to her kitchen on the main floor, she tripped on her staircase and stumbled down before landing on her left side, injuring herself. While she argued that she injured herself while exiting her workplace and thus was eligible for workers’ compensation (which pays 90 per cent of an employee’s salary for up to two years in Quebec), Air Canada disagreed. -National Post
