Co-worker presented her work by sharing her screen. She forgot to unshare.

She proceeded to open Chrome and search: "Can I sue co-worker if I get coronavirus because he coughed?"

Another employee said: "Your screen is showing" :/

    Plot twist: she knew damn well her screen was still sharing.

    Can I shoot a coworker if he coughed would be just as American. That must be why guns are stockpiled. But it makes no sense, you must shoot before he coughed.

    It was a video conference where she "heard" a cough. Assuming a case pushes through and wins she gets paid "hearing" the clinking of coins.

    In fact, yes you can - at least in Austria (and I assume there is similar laws in other countries). We have paragraph 178 & 179 StGB (criminal / penal code). The headline of those laws is: Intentional endangering People from Communicable Diseases and Negligent Endangering People from Communicable Diseases. First one gives you 3 years in jail, second one one or up to 720 daily rates (measured on your income) which means about two years income.

    Willingly infecting someone with STDs like HIV, Hepatitis C and similar or risking an infection by not telling them you’re HIV / HEP C positive and having sex without a condom would also fall into this paragraph.

    @dsteiner It would be difficult to prove it was intentional though. Also difficult to prove whether the victim got sick directly from this incident and not some other exposure.

    @jeanblue well there are cases where it is easy. If you don’t stay at home when you’re sick it’s the first case as you are risking to infect someone else
