2.8 Incapacity payments for periods of medical treatment

Last amended 
8 August 2017

Time off work or loss of wages to attend medical treatment can be considered to be a period of incapacity and can be compensated under the incapacity provisions. In this case 'incapacity' may be interpreted as an inability to engage in work due to an absence from work to obtain treatment. In such cases evidence of attending the appointment and also for loss of wages is required before payment can be made.  No medical certificate is required.
