[Webinar] Work Injury Claims: Claims under the Common Law and the Work Injury Compensation Act (WICA)

Venue: Zoom Webinar

When an employee suffers a work-related injury, he or she can choose to file either a civil suit under the common law in the Courts or a claim under the Work Injury Compensation Act (WICA) with the Ministry of Manpower, but not both. This webinar will discuss the differences in the law and procedure between the common law and the WICA claims, as well as the factors the employee should consider in deciding whether to file a common law or WICA claim.
