LawWorks Legal Primer: Workplace Safety & Work Injury

Have you suffered an injury at work and wish to be compensated for it? Who can you claim from as a freelance delivery rider? What about injuries sustained while working from home? How do COVID-19 and mandatory MCs or Quarantine Orders affect your medical leave entitlement?

Keep up to date with information on workplace safety and work injury rights in an era where work is no longer confined to specific places and times. Join our moderator Goh Qian Hui (Assistant Manager, Law Society Pro Bono Services) as she finds out more from Patrick Tay (Assistant Secretary-General and Director of Legal, NTUC), and K. Anparasan (Director of WhiteFern LLC).
