Work Injury Compensation Insurance is one of the best tool for attracting highly qualified employees on your firm. As an employer, you are required by the law to compensate your employees and their dependants for accidents/deaths arising during the course of their employment.
This can be expensive, stressful and detrimental to the development of your business. Our Work Injury Compensation Insurance comes in to limit your liability
in the event of such happenings. Even if your company is not mandated to cover employees in certain industries, (e.g. theatre, hotels and cinemas), our policy has irresistible benefits.
Our Work Injury Compensation Insurance goes a step further to compensate your employees if they become permanently disabled when working on your company. In the event of death, compensation is passed to the employees’ dependants. As an employer, the policy keeps you from costly claims from employees who can hold you liable for accidents or diseases they suffered in your workplace. Our plans cover contract based workers and all employees under apprenticeship irrespective of their earning level. The plan also takes care of any legal liability arising due to your negligence as an employer.
icon-quote-left Under the MOM Employment Act, Work Injury Compensation Insurance is compulsory for all manual workers and non manual workers earning less than $1,600 per month. It is not a statutory obligation to insure staff who do not fit the above criteria, but you can decide whether to buy such insurance or other corporate benefits as you may be required to compensate your staff in the event of a valid claim, after weighing the risks involved with price of the insurance premiums.
On a side note, should you own foreign workers in your firm, it is imperative to cover them with foreign worker medical insurance of at least $15,000 under MOM employment regulations icon-quote-right
