Compo back to very best
I WRITE to welcome the Palaszczuk Government’s announcement that it will repeal unfair changes previously made to the state’s workers compensation scheme that will ensure Queensland once again has Australia’s best workers compensation scheme.
In 2013, the Newman government introduced unfair injury thresholds that saw the legal rights of thousands of the state’s injured workers stripped away.
The introduction of a Bill to the Queensland Parliament on July 15 to repeal injury thresholds is good news for injured workers and employers.
With this Bill, Queensland can once again proudly say we have the best workers compensation scheme in the country.
