Workers Compensation Insurance is compulsory for almost all employers in Australia. If one of your employees is injured or falls ill in the course of their work, Workers Compensation Insurance can assist by covering medical and rehabilitation expenses, in addition to loss of income. This cover aims to support injured workers in their recovery and return to work, helping negate the impact on your work environment.
Workers Compensation in Australia can be complex however, as it is governed by differing state-based legislation. Varying legislative requirements across Australia make it difficult to understand employer responsibilities and manage claims.
