New Zealand is unique in that all citizens are covered by accident compensation insurance, a government-run scheme covering New Zealanders for death and injury by accident. Under the New Zealand ACC scheme, an employee cannot sue an employer where the employee is entitled to receive compensation for a work related injury. However, employers are subject to the Health and Safety in Employment Act. Details of which can be found online at the Department of Labour.
