A court in France has ruled to hold a company liable in the death of one of its employees, who died from a heart attack following a sexual encounter on a business trip.

The safety technician, identified as M. Xavier, had traveled to the Loiret region, roughly 90 miles south of Paris, in 2013 for work when he had sex with a "complete stranger".

The man suffered a heart attack while having sex and died, The Local France reported, citing local media.

But in the company's defense in court, Xavier was not carrying out any professional duties when he joined his unknown guest in her hotel room.

TSO, Xavier's former employer, argued he died during an "extramarital relationship with a ideal stranger".

The company challenged a decision by the state health insurance provider to regard the death as a workplace accident.

The ongoing spat has dented its manufacturing sector in particular, as factories have been hit by falling orders. The eurozone's main interest rate has remained unchanged at zero.

French judges disagreed with TSO and stated that an employee who is on a work trip remains the responsibility of the employer, regardless of what the employee does during and after working hours.

The French labour authorities ruled that Xaiver's sudden death should be classified as an "accident du travail", which translates to "work accident", reports the Mail Online.

Therefore the reason for his death was not "attributable to his work but to the sexual act he had with a complete stranger".

The Paris court argued that it doesn't matter whether an accident during a business trip happens on work or personal time, unless an employer has proof an employee "interrupted his mission" for personal reasons.

"During the entire period of the business trip, he remains under the employer's authority until he's shown that he has interrupted for an activity that can not be considered part of everyday life".

The provider defended its position by insisting that sexual activity was normal, "just like as taking a shower or a meal".
