Workers Comp

Get Involved

The NSW workers compensation scheme is about $1 billion in surplus and employers have enjoyed a 17.5% reduction in premiums since the 2012 cuts to workers compensation. Yet at the same time, injured workers have had access to medical and rehab support and weekly payments reduced.

This isn’t good enough, and it’s not how a Government should be treating injured workers.

The Government knows their workers compensation laws are unfair. This is why they’ve introduced minor changes and heard unanimous recommendations for change from their own Law and Justice Committee. 

The Government should act to immediately restore justice for all injured workers

We the undersigned are sick of the mistreatment of injured workers by this Government. 

Given the large and growing surplus in the workers compensation scheme, we call on the NSW Government to act quickly, and before the State Election, to restore lifetime medical expenses for treatment arising out of an illness or injury for all injured workers.

We firmly believe that more changes are needed to restore justice to injured workers. However as concerned citizens, we feel this one change will be an important and symbolic first step.
