Workers Compensation NSW
In NSW, all employers are obliged by law to have compulsory workers compensation insurance in place for all workers they employ. As an employee, you are covered if you are employed as:
- A full or part-time employee
- A self-employed tradie or worker
- A permanent or casual worker
- Someone deemed to be an employee
The injuries and illnesses covered by the NSW workers compensation scheme include those sustained on the job, during work activities or as a result of work. There are different kinds of claims you may be eligible to make, depending on the circumstances of your accident or illness.
