Significant changes have been made to workers compensation during the last 12-18 months and WorkCover NSW recently released their report card promoting the resulting positive impacts. NSW reforms were designed to make workplaces safer, premiums fairer, affordable and easier to understand. With less claims, improved Return to Work rates, less red tape are a few of the results.
The old Workers Compensation Scheme was failing many NSW businesses. It was difficult to follow, time consuming to renew and often came with unexpected premium increases that added uncertainty and stress. In 2012, ideas were explored for ways to improve the system, starting with reforms for the small employers of NSW.
