Why should I pay my injured worker medical leave wages before the claim has been determined to be a valid WICA claim?

You must promptly pay medical leave wages to ensure that your injured employee has means of sustenance while their claim is being processed.

However, the Commissioner for Labour can order the employee to return any sum paid as medical leave wages if the claim is subsequently deemed as invalid or false.
