Work Injury Compensation

there is no trade we cannot cover!

 

 

With the revised Work Injury Compensation Act (WICA) in place in June 2012, employers are required to maintain adequate insurance for the following employees:

  • all employees involved in manual work; and

  • all other non-manual workers earning $1,600 or less a month.

 

 

Employers are susceptible to legal liability from claims under WICA and the Common Law for all employees, even if they are not under the categories mentioned above. As such, Chubb has developed a holistic solution - Chubb Work Guard, to safeguard employers’ liability, and offer value-added services to enhance productivity and quality of the workplace. This is a work injury compensation program aimed to protect employers and employees by providing above and beyond the basic statutory requirements.
