Compensation Fund to host an Open Day for All Employers in Gauteng Province
In an effort to continuously assist employers in adhering to the Compensation for Occupational Injuries and Diseases Act (COIDA), the Compensation Fund (CF) will be hosting an open day for employers operating in Gauteng Province at Birchwood Hotel and Conference Centre from the 11th to 13th October 2022.
The Open Day is aimed at proactively assisting employers to prepare and submit their claims with ease, submit outstanding documentation, update contact details, check their compliance status, register on the CompEasy system and other related technical queries.
On the day, the following services will be provided, COID services, Employer Services, Employer Assessment, Employer Compliance, Customer Care as well as Information and Communication Technology Services to deal with online registration errors. The three day’s open day will help eradicate challenges employers are currently experiencing with regards to their COIDA compliance status and help ease their current frustrations with claims challenges and other related issues.
The Compensation Fund exists to administer the COID Act, it’s main objective is to provide compensation for disability, illness and death resulting from occupational injuries and diseases. The open day will therefore create a more open, transparent and informative opportunity for the CF to engage with employers in all sectors.
In terms of the COID Act, employers are required to register with the Compensation Fund and pay an annual assessment fee based on their workers’ earnings and the risks associated with the type of work done.
