A responsible employer maintains a safe workplace and protects the business and employees from any financial burdens in the unforeseen event of a work-related injury. GIG will provide your employee, if injured during the course of their employment, with wage replacement and medical benefits.
Worker’s compensation is a mandatory cover in most of the UAE free zones. It covers any occupational sickness or accident arising during the course of employment that results in incurring medical expenses and loss of wages.
In addition to basic cover, you can protect yourself as the employer against any claim made by the employee as per Labour Law/Workmen's Compensation Ordinance. In the UAE, compensation is governed by Chapter 8 of Federal Law No. 1980.
