Court Cases / Fifteenth GMS Court Case

APA Construction vs Minister Social Affairs

‚ÄčThis is the second case brought recently with respect to Work-accident Social Security Insurance. Employers and workers both contribute premiums to fund this Work-Accident Social Security Insurance. It appears that the Ministry of Social Affairs is trying to minimize cost of the Work-accident Social Security Insurance by refusing to recognize Work-accidents and treating them instead as Sickness-events. The Sickness Social Security is much cheaper for the Ministry than the Work-accident Insurance Scheme. So it appears the Ministry is trying to save costs at the expense of the rights that injured workers are entitled to based on the Work-accident Social Security Insurance. If this is indeed going on, it should be stopped immediately. That is the objective of this case.
