Workmen’s Compensation insurance protects businesses against death, bodily injury and illness of an employee arising out of work related exposures in accordance with the U.A.E. Labor Laws. In addition, the policy provides coverage for the medical benefits in private hospitals and clinics arising from accidents and also repatriation expenses in case of mortality. It also covers associated costs such as claimants’ legal fees and the costs of defending the action.
This insurance will normally provide protection against the cost of defending prosecutions of the insured under health and safety legislation with regard to incidents relating to employees.
