Changes to Tas workers comp laws

Changes to workers comp laws

Amendments to Tasmania’s Workers Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 1988 have passed through Parliament.


The aim of these changes is to remove excessive ‘red tape’ associated with the state’s workers rehabilitation and compensation scheme. Instead the focus will be directed to achieving positive outcomes for injured workers and employers.
