HC Deb 06 February 1913 vol 48 c38

asked whether, in the case of an employé bringing a fully stamped card to his or her employer, the employer is within his rights in employing the said person without paying any contribution for the period franked by the card?


An employer is relieved from liability for stamping a card in the latter part of the week if the insured person has been in employment within the meaning of the Act in the earlier part. The fact that the card has an insurance stamp on it is not in itself conclusive evidence that this condition has been complied with; and if the employé has himself stamped the card, it is the duty of the employer to ratify the stamping as having been done for himself by paying to that employé the cash value of that stamp.
