While an employer has an affirmative duty to provide employees with a safe place to work (Lab. Code, § 6400(a); Seabright Ins. Co. v. US Airways, Inc. (2011) 52 Cal.4th 590, 603), this decision holds that this duty does not include ensuring that an off-site meeting place for coworkers and business associates–such as at an employee’s private residence is safe from third party criminal harm. Here, a worker’s mentally deranged son shot co-workers meeting that the worker’s home, killing one and injuring another. The employer had no right to control the worker’s home so as to prevent or guard against a dangerous condition, and thus owed no duty to do so.
