16.10.1 Growth of doctrine from 'ordinary recess'


Landmark case-law has seen the extension of the provision under 6(1)b(i) – i.e. relating to injuries occurring during an 'ordinary recess' – to longer periods in some special cases.

Briefly, in those circumstances where the employee is required to reside away from his/her usual residence temporarily for the purposes of the employment, injuries occurring after the formal 'close of business' for the day, may still be compensable.
