Comparing workers comp across ANZ

Tuesday, 12 August, 2008

The latest edition of the Comparison of Workers’ Compensation Arrangements in Australia and New Zealand was released by the Australian Safety and Compensation Council (ASCC) recently.

The report provides a comprehensive description of the operation of workers compensation systems across Australia and New Zealand.

Speaking on the release of the report, ASCC Chairman, Bill Scales said that it provides a comprehensive resource for the wide range of stakeholders involved in workers’ compensation.

“The Comparison will be relevant for employers, workers, practitioners in the field and policy makers,” he said.

The Comparison provides a background to the evolution of workers compensation arrangements in Australia and New Zealand, detailing the schemes, coverage, benefits, return to work provisions, self-insurance, common law, dispute resolution and cross-boarder arrangements.

“This is the second year that the ASCC has produced the Comparison, with this edition being further enhanced with three new chapters, focusing on the key aspects of each scheme, self-insurance arrangements and workers compensation schemes for specific groups,” Scales said.

The online report is available on the ASCC’s website.
