What is Workers Compensation?

Workers Compensation Insurance covers most medical bills of your workers if they suffer a work-related injury and wages, if they are unable to work following the injury. It’s compulsory for most employers in Australia. From slips, trip and falls to muscle strains and injuries, Workers Compensation provides support for workers with a work-related injury.
