settelment /compensation of death
Does a out of court settelment/compensation for death of a casual labour during work will save me from any legal proceddings in future
Asked in Labour from Sawai Madhopur, Rajasthan
No, if you are the employer. The procedure is to inform the compensation commissioner about his death and submit the compensation amount with the commissioner itself as decided by the Commissioner. There are chances of filing a suit by the relative of the labour even later on. The only thing you can give out of court is interim relief or advance payment and not the whole amount.
1. Get youself cleared with due process of law,
2. Inform the appropriate authories about his death and pay the amount prescribed,
3. Do not go for out of the Court settlement since later on some relative or lagal heir of the worker may take you to Court.
Dear Sir Madam,
The person was hired for only one or two hours purly tempory basis and not for any company/firm or other institution.Just for trimming of a tree. and met with the accident.
Does it is highly required to inform the compensation commisioner and do the formalities.
