WorkCover WA publishes the outcomes of prosecutions against employers who have not met their workers’ compensation obligations. All businesses that employ workers must have workers’ compensation insurance under the Workers’ Compensation and Injury Management Act 1981, and failure to do so can result in serious consequences and penalties.

Over an 18 month period, a café operated and employed workers whilst not holding a current workers’ compensation policy. The café was ordered to pay $23,740, equating to:

• $10,000 fine
• $927 in costs
• $12,813 in avoided premium.
