This insurance is to insure employees by their employers for the costs of medical care and loss of income as a result of an accident. The benefit is 100%. In the event of permanent occupational disability, a wage-replacement benefit will be provided. In the event of death as a result of an accident, the surviving relatives are entitled to accident money.
Much of this legislation has been placed under the national ordinance for accident insurance. A national ordinance is a law adopted by the government and parliament together. Before a national ordinance can be adopted, the government must seek advice on the proposal from the Advisory Council. A national ordinance therefore has the same force as a law.
You can find the legal information regarding this national ordinance in the various annexes.
