Just in case we need to add a WYSIWYG block to every page. We can hide this in the meantime.

The Workers' Compensation and Injury Management Act 2023 and the Workers Compensation and Injury Management Regulations 2024 commence on 1 July 2024.

The legislation implements a range of changes, including:

  • amending the exclusion that relates to psychological injuries that are related to reasonable administrative action;
  • prohibiting an employer from being present at a medical examination whilst a worker is being physically examined;
  • prohibiting disclosure of information about a worker’s claims history for the purpose of pre-employment screening;
  • modifying the way weekly compensation is calculated;
  • introducing provisional liability if a notice is not issued by the prescribed date;
  • including a specific prohibition on termination of employment; and
  • establishing new obligations for host employers to assist with the return to work of labour hire workers.

This webinar provided information about the key changes that employers must understand to manage claims and return to work effectively, and to meet their legal obligations.
