New legal regime for accidents at work begins to be applied on May 1, 2023

Praia, Apr 3 (Inforpress) – Banco de Cabo Verde (BCV) has already regulated the compulsory insurance rate for work accidents and occupational diseases, thus allowing the application of the new legal regime from May 1, 2023.

According to the BCV notice, published in the Official Bulletin (BO) on March 30, the new legal regime for accidents at work and occupational diseases proven in 2020 should come into force on January 1, 2021.

However, the economic crisis associated with the covid-19 pandemic meant that its entry into force was successively postponed, having entered into force on January 1, 2023.

However, for this regime to be applied, it was necessary for there to be a tariff regulation issued by the BCV, since it did not opt for a tariff or premium regime freely contractualized between the parties.
