    Further In-depth study of Employment Injury Insurance Scheme for Sri Lanka

    Project ID: SI-001 Status: Completed

    Employment Injury is one of 9 areas of social security as defined by the ILO Convention No 102 and is further detailed in ILO Convention No 121 on Employment Injury Benefits. Employment Injury Insurance (EII) is a system of social insurance that aims to provide all workers a method of compensation during periods of work-related injury. Compensation can include replacement wages, nursing benefits, medical benefits and in case of death, survivor benefits. The main system currently in place to compensate injured employees is an employer-liability system by an act of law insurance is not mandatory for employers to cover this liability. The study aims to assess the benefits and shortfalls of the current system in Sri Lanka and to assess the viability of introducing a social insurance scheme for this purpose.
