Workers and businesses across the State of New South Wales (Australia) are being encouraged to provide feedback on the proposed amendments to the Workers Compensation Regulation 2010.
Minister for Finance Michael Daley said the public will be able to provide feedback on the draft Workers Compensation Regulation 2010.
Only minor amendments have been made to the current regulations including:
1. Updating existing provisions to match current practices and laws; and
2. The inclusion of a minor additional provision that allows WorkCover to obtain information, documents and evidence in relation to a possible contravention of the 1998 Act. (WCxKit)
Daley said the proposed Regulation will replace the existing Workers Compensation Regulation 2003, in September.
“The repeal process provides an opportunity to simplify and improve the operation of the existing Regulation,” Daley remarked. “It also removes redundant provisions and includes updated clauses to align with current practices. Remaking the 2003 Regulation will help ensure the State’s workers compensation system continues to operate efficiently and provide the best possible outcomes for injured workers and employers.”
WorkCover will review all feedback received during the public consultation period prior to finalizing the revised Regulation. The draft Regulation and associated Regulatory Impact Statement is available from www.workcover.nsw.gov.au/lawpolicy/regulations/wcreg2010. Submissions must be received in writing by 5 p.m. on Friday, August 6. Email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
