A restaurant was recently fined $16,774 for not holding a valid workers’ compensation policy.

Workers’ compensation insurance protects employers from the financial cost of a work-related injury or disease. It also protects injured workers by providing weekly payments to cover loss of earning capacity, payment of reasonable medical and rehabilitation expenses, and other entitlements.

Employers can obtain insurance by engaging a WorkCover WA approved insurer directly, or through a broker. For more information, visit www.workcover.wa.gov.au/…/getting-an-insurance-policy/
