dc.contributor.judge Froneman J separate judgment 3 March 2011
dc.concourt.synopsis Appeal from the Supreme Court of Appeal concerning the compensatory schemes for employees suffering diseases at work under the Compensation for Occupational Injuries and Diseases Act (COIDA), on the one hand, and Occupational Diseases in Mines and Works Act (ODIMWA), on the other, and an individual's right to claim for common law compensation. The issue was whether section 35(1) of the COIDA extinguished a miner's common law right to claim damages even though he did not qualify for compensation under COIDA, but qualified under ODIMWA. The Court held that it was clear from history leading up to the adoption of both Acts and the drafting of COIDA that section 35(1) did not extend to those who did not qualify under the COIDA compensation scheme and therefore did not apply to those who qualified under ODIMWA. Consequently mineworkers, who they fell under the remit of ODIMWA, were able to enforce their common law right to compensation for diseases that contracted in the course of employment. The appeal was upheld. Judgment: Khampepe J (unanimous).
