Hi Team,
Special thanks to this forum for providing an opportunity to gain knowledge. I have a query, my employee on field work met with an accident (2 wheeler). We have an accidental insurance which doesn't re imburse any medical bills as he was not hospitalized. It was a fracture for which the employee was on 30 days leave. Now I do not know whether should my company be paying for his 30 days leave or re imburse his medical bills?
Kindly advise

If the employee doesn't fall under ESIC category, then he would fall under category of Employee Compensation Act, 1923. He should be paid compensation @ rate given temporary partial disablement after assesment of the injury if the same is not covered under the insurance. For more info pls refer employees compensation act, 1923..
If your establishment is a shop and not an industry, pls refer shops and establishment act of your state as most of the shops and establishment acts include the clause under employee Compensation act, 1923.

It is not very relevant whether he is working in Shop or Factory.
First point is whether is eligible for ESI benefit.
If not,whether he is an employee as defined in EC Act.

Thank You Mr. Ravi and Varghese,
Firstly he doesn't come under ESI as we do not have one in our company. This is a partnership (pvt) firm which does not have PF, ESI facility. Employee comes under EC act.
