If you�re injured at work, you may be eligible to receive compensation through the Workers Compensation scheme. Payments are connected to your ordinary rate of pay and usually continue until you�ve recovered. Your employer is also required to provide you with a return-to-work program and light duties if necessary.
The AMWU has a dedicated OHS unit that can help members through the process of lodging a Workers Compensation claim, or with any disputes between members and their employer.
Entitlements differ from State to State. For help with a workplace injury claim, contact the Helpdesk on 1300 732 698.
