WorkCover WA investigators will be visiting Williams, Wagin, Brookton, Cuballing, Popanyinning, Pingelly, Beverley and York in the Wheabelt region from 29 to 30 October 2018. They will be performing compliance checks on businesses in the area to ensure workers’ compensation insurance policies are up-to-date.

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 call Communications & Education on (08) 9388 5611.

FAQ: Do I accrue leave while on workers’ compensation?

WorkCover WA often receives queries from injured workers and employers about the accrual of leave whilst on workers’ compensation. The Workers’ Compensation and Injury Management Act 1981 is silent on this, and therefore WorkCover WA is unable to provide advice regarding this. If you need information about the accrual of leave, you need to contact the Fair Work Ombudsman on 13 13 94 or view the information provided on their website.
