I can see that much work would have to be done in this area. For instance, an employee could fall down his or her stairs, whether because it was not safe or for whatever reason, and if the home is the workplace and he or she was deemed to be at work, that could be an issue. I will not go on because I do not have enough time, but this definitely needs further examination.

Will Ms McElwee expand on the issue of excluding certain cohorts of employee and how that would work? Ms King might also give her views on that.
