The Workmen's Compensation Insurance Policy provides for legal liability coverage for compensation to your employees for bodily injury or death caused due to accidents / occupational diseases arising out of and in course of employment.
All manufacturing units with employees who fall under the purview of the Workmen's Compensation Insurance Act, 1923 have Employers' Liability exposures under the Act.
The workmen's compensation insurance is the primary method by which an employer can demonstrate the ability to satisfy the obligations imposed by the worker's compensation statutes. It is compensation payable under a scheme set out in the Workmen's Compensation Act of India, monitored by the Ministry of Labour.
All business organisations have Employers' Liability exposures under Common Law and such organisations form the target market for this class of business.
