Since the Liberals’ cruel changes to the state’s workers’ compensation scheme injured workers have had support for rehabilitation and medical treatment stripped away.

Sign our petition and tell the Baird Government to scrap these unfair changes.

The 2012 changes to the scheme cut access to medical treatment, including prosthetics, for injured workers by restricting the timeframe in which assistance is available.

The report on the first review of the WorkCover Authority by the Law and Justice Committee is now available here: bit.ly/1qsefam

The Committee’s recommendations, if implemented by the Baird Liberal Government, will improve some of the punitive changes to workers compensation that were legislated by the Liberals and Nationals in 2012.

The Committee’s findings also expose the cruel changes as being both harsh and unnecessary.
