The Work Injury Compensation Act (WICA) came into effect on 1 April 2008. Despite the passing of years, it remains a significant piece of legislation, for both the employer and the employee.
WICA safeguards the interests of injured employees and aims to deter non payment (or delayed payment) of compensation by irresponsible employers. At the same time, it seeks to protect employers against fraudulent claims by errant employees.
