Workers comp must up its game
The preliminary findings of a NSW Government workers compensation survey reveal a lack of support for workers.
The findings are part of a survey of injured workers’ experiences in the NSW workers compensation system.
A lack of case management support and access to quality information are the main problems, said NSW Minister for Finance, Services and Property Dominic Perrottet in a media statement.
“While some injured workers have had positive experiences, we can see many are concerned about better information and timely communication, financial support for medical services and retraining, and being supported by their employer and insurer,” Perrottet said.
The full results of the survey will be released in August.
