What are the deadlines for withdrawing a claim or suit?

I'm still deciding whether to make claims under WICA or file a civil suit due to the injury I incurred while I was working in the company. I want to know the deadline for withdrawing a claim or suit. I also want to know the deadlines for withdrawing a civil suit to file a WICA claim and withdrawing a WICA claim to file a civil suit.

    When you want to make a claim under WICA or under common law you have upto 1 year to decide. If you are pursuing a civil suit against your employer and want to withdraw it to file a WICA claim, you need to make your claim within 1 year from the date of the accident or diagnosis of illness. If you want to withdraw your WICA claim, you can do so at any time before MOM issues your notice of assessment (NOA).
