What should we do if a former employee has an accident at a work event?
Q: A farewell party for some departing employees was held offsite on their last day. One of these employees tripped on her skirt and injured herself at the event.
After being made aware of the incident, I contacted the ex-employee to check she was okay and conducted an investigation.
Is there anything more I should do, particularly as this person no longer works for us? Our business is in NSW.
