What is Workers Compensation?

Workers Compensation is a form of insurance that protects your workers in the event of a work-related injury claim. It is compulsory for all Australian businesses that employ workers, and is regulated by each state and territory. If a worker suffers a work-related injury, Workers Compensation is designed to take care of medical expenses, treatment and rehabilitation costs, as well as covering the worker’s wages.
