In a case where an employee suffers injury or loss of life sue to an accident, reliefs are available under various statutes. In case the accident took place while performing duties in the course of employment. Relief may be sought under the Workmen’s Compensation Act, the Employee State Insurance Act or the Motor Vehicle Act. However relief may be sought only under one of the stated statues and not each one of them.
In the present case the same may be subject to the terms of the contract so entered into by the employee and employer. It is difficult to determine what compensation the injured party may be eligible to obtain without having access to the contract. In case such a provision is available in the contract and the employer fails to fulfil it, the person can file a case for specific performance of the contract.
