Compliance Codes released for public comment

In 2010, a number of changes were made to the Victorian Accident Compensation Act.  Compliance Codes have been developed by WorkSafe to spell out obligations regarding Return to Work issues. They have been released for public comment.

The codes cover the following topics:

    * Return to work information
    * Cooperating with labour hire employers about return to work
    * Return to Work Coordinators
    * Employers’ return to work obligations.

The codes are legal documents that outline some of the ways that employers can comply with the new laws. 

Public comment must be lodged by 11 February 2011.
