Workers compensation is an insurance system which provides the employees cash benefit and/or medical care in lieu of injuries suffered as a result of their employment while performing job-related duties assigned to them. Compensation for workers in India varies depending on the size of the company. If the business employees are more than 20, the Employees’ State Insurance Act, 1948 applies. Under this act, employees and the company pay toward an insurance benefit in case of injury. When a workplace injury occurs, the injured employee is able to avail of both medical and financial support. If the business employs less than 20 people, the company must refer to the Workmen’s Compensation Act, 1923. This act outlines methods for providing compensation to employees injured on the job. Mostly insurance companies and employers tend to get rid of their liability to ensure workers compensation to the employees by making false claims.
