  • Contravening the statutory such as Occupational, Health and Safety Act.
  • The personal negligence of fellow employee in the course of discharging the duties as an employee.

The injury or disease must be attributable to negligence on the part of the employer or breach of statutory duty on the part of employer. Therefore, an injured employee claiming under this policy has to engage a lawyer to pursue their case in or out of the court.
