Work Injury Compensation
Innovative and cost-effective Workers’ Compensation solutions
Workers’ compensation is a complex and sensitive area of insurance demanding expert service provision.
Workers’ compensation is complicated by the fact that it is partly governed by the Work Injury Compensation Act and also by common law. Under the Act, the injured employee does not need to prove negligence on the part of the employer. The Act provides for indemnity in respect of medical leave wages, medical and hospital fees and compensation for permanent disability.
Employers also face the risk of injured employees bringing claims under the common law which is an entirely different regime.
QBE Singapore’s Work Injury Compensation Insurance can help employers negotiate this complex area of risk and give both the employer and the employee greater security for the future.
