Monthly Wages Under Employees' Compensation Act, 1923
Monthly Wages under Employees Compensation
One of the main components for determining the amount of compensation payable to an employee is monthly wages. Section 5 of the Employees Compensation Act defines monthly wages as an amount of wages considered to be payable for a month's service. In 2020, The Central Government revised the amount of the monthly wages, which are considered for compensation, from Rs. 8,000 to Rs. 15,000.
Calculation of Compensation
As per the Act, an employer has to pay compensation for injury or death caused to an employee due to an accident during the course of employment. The basis on which the calculation of compensation is made is the monthly wage system.
Section 4 of the Act guides the computation of compensation for the employees.
In case of death, the employer is liable to pay the deceased employee's dependents:
50% percent of the deceased employee’s monthly wages multiplied by “the relevant factor”
Rs. 1,20,000, whichever is higher.
In case of injury that results in permanent total disablement, the employer is liable to pay:
60 percent of the injured employee’s monthly wages multiplied by “the relevant factor”
Rs. 1,40,000, whichever is higher.
In case of Injury resulting in total or partial temporary disablement, the employer is liable to pay a half-monthly payment of the sum equivalent to 25% of monthly wages.
*The relevant factor for computation is stated in Schedule IV of the Act
As per the Government’s new notification, compensation is now calculated at Rs. 15,000 (considered as wage amount)
