What is Workers' compensation?
Workers' compensation is a form of insurance paid to employees if they are injured at work or become sick due to their work. Workers' compensation includes payments to employees to cover their:
- Wages while they're not fit for work
- Medical expenses and rehabilitation.
Your employer has to take out workers' compensation insurance to cover themselves and you as an employee.
Getting legal advice is important
The Workers' Compensation Legislation can be complex and difficult for workers to understand what they are entitled to. It is important that you get expert legal advice to make sure you know what you are entitled to claim. Legal advice will also help you understand your responsibilities, the employer's responsibilities and insurer's responsibilities in relation to returning to work following an injury.
