AUSSIES are always looking for a way to bank a wage for minimal effort – worker’s comp takes the effort to zero.
If not for the associated court cases being paid for from the public purse, these would be hilarious.
Case 1 – the obese ABS worker who claimed a psychological injury left him unable to mow his lawn.
Case 2 – the ATO worker who claimed $20,000 for breast reduction surgery, claiming sitting at a desk caused neck and back pain.
Case 3 – the public servant who claimed for physical injuries sustained in a motel room romp on a work trip.
None of the trio, thankfully, received a dime.
