The 2nd Senate of the Federal Social Court in Germany has determined that a remote worker who fell between his bed and desk was injured while “commuting.”

The plaintiff was on his way to work, moving from his bedroom to his home office which was located one floor below. According to the suit, he would usually begin work in his office immediately after waking up, without having breakfast first. While descending the spiral staircase that connected the two rooms, he slipped and fell, breaking a thoracic vertebra.
