Procedure – Release of information about an employer’s insurer status
WorkCover WA has finalised changes to the way we process requests for information about the workers’ compensation insurer status of an employer.
Often requests are vague, or a response is required on an urgent basis. Further, requests seeking evidence of insurance status from historical records can place significant pressure on WorkCover WA resources which impacts the speed requests can be dealt with. The changes WorkCover WA has made are designed to ensure we are able to respond to requests in a timely and accurate manner.
WorkCover WA has published a Procedure which sets out the requirements when requesting information about an employer’s insurer status. From today, requests that do not meet the requirements of the new procedure will not be accepted.
