Note that 'incapacity for work' is defined in S4(9) as being:

a)an incapacity to engage in any work, or

b)an incapacity to engage in work at the same level at which he or she was engaged by the Commonwealth or a licensed corporation in that work or any other work immediately before the injury happened.
