As an employer you have legal obligations and a duty of care to your employees. If your employees sustain bodily injury due to an accident arising out of, or in the course of, their employment, you are required by legislation to pay compensation.
Apart from the statutory liability, the employer may also be liable to his employees under Common Law. A Workers' Compensation policy helps an employer to meet its obligations to employees and includes costs of investigation, defence and any compensation awarded by the court.
In some markets a comprehensive workers compensation scheme may include optional benefits that assist companies with retaining their staff.
