The information on this website is of a general nature only. Much of it has been abbreviated for clarity and is therefore not an exhaustive statement of the law.
From 1 July 2010 the Workers Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 1988 has been amended. These amendments affect claims in respect of injuries occurring on or after 1 July 2010. These amendments do apply to claims prior to 1 July 2010 only in respect of the return to work and injury management processes detailed in section 143L and 143M of the Act.
When linking to the legislation you should ensure that you are referring to the correct sessional version. The links at the bottom of each section will indicate when changes were made.
Further amendments may occur to both the Workers Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 1988 and Workers Rehabilitation and Compensation Regulations 2001.
WorkCover Tasmania can assist with general enquiries on the Act and the Tribunal can assist with processes relating to claims which have been disputed. Neither of these bodies can give legal advice. Please refer to the Act or consult a lawyer for advice on the law.
