  • What is work related injury under workmens compensation?

    Hi,
    Can some one please explain what is work related injury under workmens compensation? I am an HR officer on a Generalist role. One of my colleague says Workmens compensation should be for every employee in the company irrespective of your role. But my knowledge from my experience and curriculum is that Workmens compensation is eligible only if you are involved in certain activities at work which involves risk of causing injury or other mishaps. Please correct me if I am wrong by providing the right meaning and eligibility details of this benefit.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Rima

    Hi Rima,
    Please refer to the below link which has the bare act of workmen (employee) compensation act. Which covers mostly for blue collar jobs. Not for clerical or managers or supervisors.

    You can approach insurance companies to cover the workmen compensation insurance to all employees.
