For permanent disability (like losing a hand) there should be a monthly pension for the rest of your life (disability of more than 30 %).

Hi tinus

Regarding an IOD, i have two questions.

1: Is it possible to appeal a doctor's decision to book off an employee? For instance we had an IOD where an employee was booked off for 4 days because a midge flew into his eye. Last week an employee inhaled smoked from a bush fire in the area and was booked off now for 3 days. This is causing our LTI rating to rise unnecessarily.

2: If an employee reports his injury after going home and returning to work, is the company still liable to treat his injury? because it would be impossible to prove if he got injured at work or injured at home.

Good morning

1. Yes, the employer may send an employee for a second option. The party requiring the medical examination would be responsible for the cost. Secondly, most medical practitioner would not go against another practitioner findings.

2. Yes, the employer would still be obligated to treat it as an IOD.

May I advise you to look at the following course: http://www.labourguide.co.za/40-labour-law/workshops/811-occupational-injuries-and-diseases-in-the-workplace21
