Worker's Compensation (Wcom)
- Hits: 17997
The Workmen’s Compensation Act (Cap. 94) places on employers the legal responsibility to compensate workers who sustain injuries and contract diseases out of or in the course of their employment. The actual compensation is through monetary payments and medical care provisions for the workers. In cases involving the death of workers, compensation is paid to the dependents of the deceased. The challenge of the Service is to effectively clear all backlog compensation cases for both the civil servants and the military personnel since the start of the engagement in Lebanon and Sinai in the 1970s, to facilitate the transition into the new Workers Compensation legislation in 2012. The Service is also responsible for the administration of secretarial services for the NOHSAB.
