a friend of mine experienced an accident while working at one of the eastern resorts. It appears she will need physical therapy for a considerable length of time. I mentioned that perhaps the employer was covered by workmans compensation and that an application for assistance should be submitted. Is there such a coverage for employees in the DR? This question may have been raised before but my search engine appears to be on the blink. Thanks for any information.

I believe the ley covering this issue is 87-01. To my knowledge it is part of the social security system group of regulations.

Best wishes to your friend.

To be legal, the company must be covered through TSS. All employees must be insured and paid proper benefits.

Even the basic Senasa insurance free for all Dominicans includes physical therapy.
If all else fails...

A little more information...my friend is employed by the Gran Palladium, Punta Cana and receives wages of 8050 rdp every 15 days. She mentioned that this was minimum wage. Idopril is the insurance agency. Idopril is paying her medical bills and 5930 rdp every 15 days. Gran Palladium pays nothing. I'm not the expert but I'm figuring the amounts are probably within the law in the RD. By my figures, she is receiving around 75%. Of course, she is not happy about what I'm trying to tell her. Perhaps someone who has dealt with the system can provide more information that I can relay to her. Many tks to all that have responded.
