Current version for 25 March 2020 to date (accessed 8 April 2020 at 20:12)
33   Weekly compensation during total or partial incapacity for work
(cf former s 9 (1))
If total or partial incapacity for work results from an injury, the compensation payable by the employer under this Act to the injured worker shall include a weekly payment during the incapacity.
 Chapter 3 of the 1998 Act (Workplace injury management) provides that, if a worker fails unreasonably to comply with a requirement of that Chapter after being requested to do so by an insurer, the worker has no entitlement to weekly payments of compensation for the period that the failure continues.
