A Czech Supreme Court verdict has confirmed that injuries incurred during quasi-obligatory work related ‘team building’ activities are the responsibility of the employer and should be regarded as work-related, the news server Aktuálně.cz reported on Saturday. A case concerning a Brno-based university professor who was injured during a team building sports event in 2005 made its way all the way to the country’s highest court after an insurance company refused to pay almost 130,000 crowns for damages. The company claimed that the sports event was not part of work. The Supreme Court verdict is in line with similar rulings in the past.
