one of our employee who is working in the capacity of Manager, met with an accident during the course of his employement at our factory premises. He has been given proper medical treatment, But the other employee who was with him at hospital and spent money on his treatment, when asked for the reimbursement after submitting the bills, Accounts dept. said that since the injured employee is entitled for medical reimbursement so company will not pay any money on his treatment & no extra ordinary leave will be sanctioned to him.
But the question is :
01.In our company medical reimbursement is a part of CTC and employees are getting this on monthly basis after submitting the bills.
02. At present our company is not covered under ESI and W.C Act, But it is applicable at our coorporate office.
03. If any unpleasent things happens with any one during the course of employement, Does that employee lost his right for medical treatment on company,s expence on the ground that he is entitlement for medical reimbursement.
The injured person is eligible to get medical reimbursment for all his genuine expenses till s/he recovers after accident. However, the company may not entertain any medical bills submitted by any third party on behalf of the injured. In case any third party incurred any expenses on the prescription of the doctor, they should hand over the bills to the patient for reimbursement. There is no link between med. reimb. allowance in CTC and medical exp. reimb. due to accident on duty.
