2.2 S24 Compensation for Injuries Resulting in Permanent Impairment


Section 24 of the SRCA authorises payment of compensation for injuries resulting in permanent impairment. It sets out provisions for determining the compensation to be awarded, including the considerations involved in determining whether an impairment is permanent, the maximum amount payable, the requirement to determine the percentage of the maximum amount to be paid using the Approved Guide and the minimum threshold levels of impairment that need to be met if compensation is to be paid.   

Note that the connection between the employment and the injury is provided by provisions relating to definitions of “injury” and “disease” given in Part 1 of the SRCA.
