Compensation for Occupational Injuries and Diseases Act (COIDA)
Businesses that engage one or more employees must be registered with South Africa’s Compensation Fund in terms of the Compensation for Occupational Injuries and Diseases Act (COIDA) – previously known as workman’s compensation.
Once registered, returns of earnings statements must be submitted, tariffs paid and processes implemented to ensure that only COIDA-registered contractors are hired. Failure to comply results in penalties and/ or criminal charges.
