3.5.2 Effect of Canute, Fellowes & Robson

Document

An injured employee is entitled to receive a separate payment under section 27 of the SRCA for each accepted injury that results in permanent impairment compensation under section 24 of the SRCA. Following the decisions in Canute, Fellowes & Robson, more injuries are assessed separately, leading to an increased number of discrete NEL payments. Care should be taken so that employees that have already received NEL compensation are not compensated twice for the same effects on their lifestyle.
