Aye, aye, aye!

 Woman injured during sex on company time gets workers’ comp
"A woman who was injured while having sex in her hotel room during a business trip is entitled to workers' compensation, Australian media report."
"In his statement, the man said the two were "going hard" when a glass light fixture above the bed came away from the wall and fell on the woman's face." "I think she was on her back when it happened," the man added,"but I was not paying attention because we are rolling around."

The federal government employee, who the BBC reports, is in her late 30s, said she suffered injuries to her nose, mouth and a tooth as a result of the glass light fitting hitting her face. She reportedly also suffered from depression and anxiety.

When she applied for Workers' Compensation, it was denied. She didn't stop there. She went on to sue, ComCare,— the government agency in charge of monitoring occupational health and safety — after it rejected her compensation claim. The agency said the woman had to prove her injury had been caused by an activity that had been "implied" or "encouraged" by her employer. But the federal court Thursday saw it differently."
Nice work, if you can get it.
