WorkCover WA officers will be visiting Dongara and Geraldton in the Mid West region from 25 to 28 March 2019. They will be performing compliance checks on businesses in the area to ensure workers’ compensation insurance policies are up-to-date, and provide education to general practitioners and brokers about workers’ compensation.

It is important to remember:
• employers in WA must have workers’ compensation insurance
• workers’ compensation insurance does not automatically renew each year
• public liability insurance is not the same as workers’ compensation insurance
• family members paid to work in a business must be insured
• contractors and sub-contractors can be ‘workers’ and may require cover
• ‘business packages’ from insurers often exclude workers’ compensation liability, so it’s important to check you have the correct cover.

WorkCover WA welcomes the opportunity to meet with you to answer any questions you may have in relation to workers’ compensation. If you would like to meet with
WorkCover WA or arrange a presentation, please email Communications & Education at communications@workcover.wa.gov.au

FAQ: How long does it take for a claim to be decided?

A: Your employer has five working days to submit your claim form and First Certificate of Capacity to their insurer. The insurer has 14 days to make a decision on the claim. If your employer is a self-insurer there are 17 days to make a decision on the claim. If additional information is required by the insurer, the legislation allows for a further 10 days.

Refer to our ‘Making a claim’ video at bit.ly/2rOMROz for further information.
