Work trial – by definition for the purpose of this post – refers to the trial of a candidate’s competence towards a job. Such can involve performing the job for a few hours (e.g. 2 hours).
Some may ask, “what happens if the candidate injured himself/herself during the job trial? Are we liable to pay compensation as per the Work Injury Compensation Act?”
It should be a NO, as the act covers employees who are under a contract of service. In this case, there is no such contract existing and therefore company should not be liable. Having said that, I can’t say that on the possibility of compensation under Common Law.
