Employer registration with Workers Compensation Fund (WCF)

On 27 July 2017 the Minister of State, Prime Minister’s Office, Policy, Parliamentary Affairs, Labour Youth, Employment and the Persons with Disability, instructed all employers (even with only 1 employee) to register with Workers Compensation Fund (WCF). She noted that many employers have not complied with the requirement to register and gave a grace period of up to 31 August 2017 for employers who have not registered, and punitive measures will be taken for non-compliance. See Daily News and Guardian.

This has been extended to 30 September 2017.
