Do I need to cover family members on my policy?
A: Yes. If you employ or contract a family member, you must cover them for workers’ compensation – even if they live in the family home.

WorkCover WA investigators recently visited Williams, Wagin, Brookton, Cuballing, Popanyinning, Pingelly, Beverley and York.

They conducted 52 compliance checks over the two days, identifying one business without a current policy of workers’ compensation insurance.

They also met with farmers in Brookton to discuss contracting arrangements, and visited medical centres and local hospitals to provide education and fact sheets.

Thank you to all businesses, practices and offices in the area for your engagement! For more information about workers’ compensation, view our Educational videos at www.workcover.wa.gov.au/resources/educational-videos/ or call our Advice and Assistance line on 1300 794 744.
