(2)  The compensation payable under this paragraph shall in no case be more than $262,000 or be less than $88,000.
[S 200/2012 wef 01/06/2012]
[S 586/2015 wef 01/01/2016]
(3)  Notwithstanding sub-paragraph (2), where the injured employee is certified by a medical practitioner to have suffered from permanent total incapacity, additional compensation shall be paid amounting to one quarter of the amount which is otherwise payable under this paragraph.
3.—(1)  Where permanent partial incapacity results from the injury, the amount of compensation shall be —
(a)in the case of an injury specified in the First Schedule, such percentage of the compensation which would have been payable in the case of permanent total incapacity as is specified therein as being the percentage of the loss of earning capacity caused by that injury; and
(b)in the case of an injury not specified in the First Schedule, such percentage of the compensation which would have been payable in the case of permanent total incapacity as is proportionate to the loss of earning capacity permanently caused by the injury in every employment which the employee was capable of undertaking at that time.
(2)  Where more injuries than one are caused by the same accident the amount of compensation payable in respect of all such injuries shall be aggregated but not so as to exceed in any case the amount which would have been payable in respect of permanent total incapacity.
4.—(1)  Where temporary incapacity whether total or partial results from the injury, the employee shall be entitled to full earnings for a period of 60 days if he is hospitalised and 14 days if he is not hospitalised and thereafter to a further periodical payment of an amount equal to two-thirds of his earnings during the incapacity or during a period of one year, whichever period is shorter.
(2)  No payment under sub-paragraph (1) shall be deducted from the lump sum payable in respect of any permanent incapacity which follows any period of temporary incapacity.
(3)  If the temporary incapacity of the employee ceases before the date on which any payment under sub-paragraph (1) falls due, he shall be paid an amount as is appropriate to the duration of such temporary incapacity.
(4)  For the purposes of this paragraph, where an employee is certified by a medical practitioner of an approved hospital to be ill enough to need to be hospitalised but the employee is not hospitalised for any reason whatsoever, he shall be deemed to be hospitalised.
5.—(1)  Any compensation payable by an employer for the medical treatment received by an employee in relation to his injury by accident arising out of and in the course of employment shall be the lower of the following amounts:
(a)the cost of medical treatment received by the employee within a period of one year after the happening of the accident causing the injury; or
(b)$36,000 per accident per employee.
[S 200/2012 wef 01/06/2012]
[S 586/2015 wef 01/01/2016]
(2)  To avoid doubt, the cost of medical treatment includes, but is not limited to —
(a)the charges in connection with an emergency medical transport for the conveyance of an injured employee to receive medical treatment;
(b)the fees for medical reports required for the purposes of this Act;
(c)the charges for physiotherapy and occupational and speech therapy;
(d)the charges for case management, psychotherapy for the treatment of post‑traumatic stress disorder, functional capacity evaluation and worksite assessment, required for the purposes of rehabilitating and enabling an injured employee to return to work; and
(e)the cost of medicines, artificial limbs and surgical appliances.
