Payment in respect of Injury on Duty

 

1. Where an employer in terms of Section 47(3) of the Compensation for Occupational Injuries and Diseases Act 1993, is of reasonable belief that an employee’s absence from work resulting from an injury on duty will be compensable under that Act, the employer shall pay an amount, to the employee equivalent to 75% of the employee’s actual hourly rate for such absence up to a maximum period of three months from the date of the accident.  The employer shall recover this payment from the Compensation Commissioner.

 

2. Whenever an employee is absent from work through occupational sickness or injury not recognised as compensable in terms of Compensation for Occupational Injuries and Diseases Act, 1993 [see Section 22(2)] he shall be paid on the basis of the employee’s actual hourly rate of pay for any period of absence up to a maximum of three working days.  Such payment made to the employee concerned shall be recoverable from the Metal and Engineering Industries Sick Pay Fund by the employer”.
