The process of compensation for employment injuries includes provision of the necessary care for the consolidation of an injury, the physical, social and vocational rehabilitation of a worker who has suffered an injury, the payment of income replacement indemnities, compensation for bodily injury and, as the case may be, death benefits.
This Act, within the limits laid down in Chapter VII, also entitles a worker who has suffered an employment injury to return to work.
