  • Accident Claim After Legal Settlement - Whether The Workman Has Right To Claim Further Relief Legally From Management

    Hi All,

    One of our workmen resigned his job and and he was relieved two years back after he met with an industrial accident. He was compensated under Employee compensation Act before the Authority concerned for the said accident. However, after a gap of 2.5 years, presently he made a demand to the Management for further compensation citing that he was not suitably compensated. Now my query in this regard is whether the workman has right to claim further relief legally from Management apart from the compensation was legally already paid to him? Whether he can approach any other forum to make further claim?

    Request experts views please.

    Hi,
    If the compensation under "Employee Compensation Act" was routed through the authority concerned then there must have been due diligence before disbursement of the payment. Now after 2.5 years if the employee says that he was under-compensated then has he given break up of his calculation to prove how he was given less compensation? If the claim is not tenable then you can give a reply accordingly. You may call him for the meeting and explain your method of calculation. Understand from him, his method of calculation. A personal meeting always helps in clearing the doubts. Nevertheless, whatever outcome of the meeting may be, both the parties must agree to sign the minutes of the meeting.
    Thanks,
