When a person is injured at work they have to take sick leave. The doctors will provide a certificate and the sick leave must be given by the employer. There is no such thing as special leave. Furthermore, the employee should not use his own leave for this sick leave. The employee should also ensure that the employer has reported the matter to the Workmens Compensation Commissioner.

I work for a security company and I was injured on duty. The hospital booked me off for 7days. My manager then advised me that I have to report back on duty but light duties. I have a injured shoulder and bruising on my back. My co standard operating procedures state in order for me to get paid in full after a death I have to wear all personal protective equipment but I was informed by management to only use part of my bullet proof vest as I work in the armed response industry. My concern is what happens if i am involved in a hazardous situation whilst on duty as i am exposed to criminal activities whilst on duty and my reaction will be slower due to my injuries. Please advise. Thank you.
