Should one or more of your workers contract COVID-19 at work, they can apply to the Compensation Fund, under COIDA. Support can include a:
- pay-out for temporary disablement while the worker is in quarantine, self-isolation or hospitalized;
- payment of medical expenses; and
- where, tragically, the illness results in fatality the Fund will pay out survivor benefits to dependents in the form of a monthly pension and funeral benefit.
Details on how to apply for the above compensation can be found in this Government Notice.
