A: I believe you are asking if your employer can stop paying for your private health insurance premiums when you are not at work due to a work related injury. If this is the question, I believe your employer can stop paying for your health insurance until you return to work. You can continue to make the payments on your own. There is no legal requirement that an employer carry private health for you without a separate contract. If this does not answer your question, I would advise you to contact an attorney directly so they can get the specifics of your situation.
