Notice – Employer attendance at medical consultations

WorkCover WA is aware of the practise of some employers attending medical consultations with injured workers.

There is no legal or operational basis for employers or their representatives to be present during a medical consultation between an injured worker and a treating doctor. This applies even where treatment is recommended or facilitated by the employer.

WorkCover WA has published a Notice which clarifies the requirements relating to worker choice of medical practitioner and employer attendance at medical consultations. Please click here to access the document.
