What is the Malawi Workers Compensation Act About?

Malawi Workers Compensation act is the section of the republic of Malawi that determines how to provide for compensation for injuries suffered or diseases contracted by workers in the course of their employment or for death resulting from such injuries or diseases.
Secondly, it is for the establishment and administration of a Workers’ Compensation Fund so that compensation is paid periodically and during the period of contingency out of the Fund.

Besides providing compensation for work-related injuries or diseases, the Malawi Workers Compensation Act outlines the processes and criteria for determining and awarding compensation. The Act also mandates the creation and administration of a Workers’ Compensation Fund, which facilitates periodic compensation payments during emergencies. The fund is under the jurisdiction of the Workers’ Compensation Commission, which supervises employer registration, payment collection, and compensation disbursement to affected workers and dependents.

Additionally, the Act stipulates employers’ obligations, including maintaining a safe and healthy work environment, taking reasonable precautions to prevent accidents, and reporting accidents and injuries to the Workers’ Compensation Commission. It also outlines the rights and responsibilities of injured workers or their dependents, such as reporting incidents, seeking medical attention, and receiving compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, and related costs.
