Overview In NSW, the basis of the workers compensation and injury management system are two main Acts:
* Workers Compensation Act 1987
* Workplace Injury Management and Workers Compensation Act 1998

The Acts regulate the contributions of employers into the compensation system and the benefits which are paid to injured workers. The treatement of workplace injuries and illnesses, and their management and rehabilitation, are provided for in this legislation.

Staff who are injured whilst carrying out a work related activity may be eligible for Workers Compensation, and should contact the University Health and Well-being Officer.

Compliance Obligations

Return to Top Insurance Policy
Description The various Act's stipulate that an employer must maintain a current insurance policy (from a licensed insurer) for the full amount of the employer's liability in respect of all workers employed by the employer and for an unlimited amount in respect of the employer's liability for the injury of those employees.
Impacts If any employer is operating in New South Wales and does not have a valid workers compensation policy in place, the employer would be subject to a $55,000 fine and/or an imprisonment of six months.
