Exemptions from coverage

Employment on a voyage or vessel that falls under the Seafarers Rehabilitation and Compensation Act (1992) (Seafarers Act) can be exempted from coverage, under section 20A of that Act, at the Seacare Authority’s discretion. These exemptions can be granted by the Seacare Authority’s own motion or can be at the request of an employer/operator.
