While completing some work-related paperwork at home, a nurse went out to her car to get a form. She fell and broke her ankle. The nurse submitted a workers’ comp claim for the injury, which was rejected. She appealed. The court upheld the rejection as reasonable. When the nurse was injured, she wasn’t required to be working and wasn’t being paid. She was hurt on her own property and the slip and fall in her driveway wasn’t a risk associated with her job, it noted [Gillis-Andrea v. Nova Scotia (Workers’ Compensation Appeals Tribunal, [2010] N.S.J. No. 172, April 8, 2010].
