The Workmen’s Compensation Act (Chapter 236, Laws of Kenya) requires employers to compensate injured employees while in the course of official duties.

It does not matter whether the employee was negligent or not provided the injuries were not self-inflicted.

In Kenya, the Act stipulates that insurance cover must be in place for all employees earning below (up to) Kshs 400,000 per annum (Kshs 33,333 per month), and is therefore a legal requirement.

This cover provides protection in the event of death, permanent disability and accidental medical expenses. The maximum compensation that can be provided is 60 months salary.
