Accident Compensation Act Amended

On 11 March 2010 the Victorian Government passed a Bill to amend the Accident Compensation Act. There were hundreds of pages of amendments. Some were good and some made it harder to get or keep workers' compensation payments.

The Victorian WorkCover Authority (who call themself WorkSafe these days) have put out a summary of changes. These are not all of the changes, in fact it is mainly the changes that are good for injured workers, not the ones that the AMIEU opposed and lobbied against.

You have the right to see what WorkCover says, so check it out here.

Soon the AMIEU will produce much more information for you.
