Not good news for ill and injured workers!
It seems no one was listening at the Parliamentary Inquiry as these draft Bills seek only to take money from the pockets of the injured and ill in an attempt to starve people back to work.
The draft Workers Compensation Bill is available at this link:
Millions of dollars of tax payers money wasted on a 3 day Inquiry,overseen on by a stacked Panel who did nothing more than waste everyones time and rubber stamp the OFarrell governments wishes to slash injured workers benefits.
No real provisions to ensure employers prevent injuries in the workplace
Reduced pay from day one
Further ability for insurers to bully and attack workers
no journey claims
Work capacity testing by INSURERS
No death benefits for the family of those killed at work that have no dependents
Impossible thresholds for permanent impairment
and a new watch dog to oversee the bedlum
and the list goes on……………………
