Work Injury Compensation Act

The Work Injury Compensation Act replaces the Workmen's Compensation Act from 1 April 2008. It provides a simple, low-cost and no-fault system that benefits both employees and employers. Employees can receive compensation quickly without having to prove fault, and employers' liability can be capped. Compensation also includes medical expenses and medical leave wages.
