Abstract:In Tanzania, compensation for occupational disabilities is provided for under the Workmen's Compensation Ordinance (Cap. 263 of the Revised Laws of Tanzania), which was promulgated during the colonial period, and the Workmen's Compensation Ordinance (Amendment) Act, no. 17 of 1983. The author examines the nature and content of the purported benefits of the system of compensation and the problems associated with the administration of the workmen's compensation legislation. He concludes that the workmen's compensation law in Tanzania is inadequate and its judicial interpretation restrictive and conservative, while the administration of the law by the Labour Department is riddled with inefficiency.
