Injured workers in the Wingecarribee Shire and Goulburn Mulwaree Council areas could be owed money from the state workers compensation manager.
In fact more than 24,000 workers from the Illawarra and South East NSW, who sustained a workplace injury between October 2012 and October 2019, could be owed money.
icare urges these people to come forward to have their past compensation payments reassessed to ensure they have received the correct entitlements.
A review of weekly payments between 2012 and 2019 has revealed NSW workers injured at work should come forward to see if they are owed money on their workers compensation payments.
Identified workers would have received a letter from icare outlining the reassessment process for a review within the below council areas:
- Wollongong City Council
- Shellharbour Council
- Kiama Council
- Shoalhaven City Council
- Campbelltown City Council
- Wingecarribee Shire Council
- Eurobodalla Shire Council
- Bega Valley Shire Council
- Goulburn Mulwaree Council
- Upper Lachlan Shire Council
- Yass Valley Council
- Hilltops Council
- Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council
- Snowy Monaro Regional Council
- Temora Shire Council
- Oberon Council
- Cowra Council
A review of historic payments has indicated earnings information used to determine weekly compensation payments was in some cases not provided to the insurer at the time.
