The final provisions of the Workers Compensation Legislation Amendment Act 2018 commenced on 21 October 2019.
The amendments include the introduction of a simplified process to determine an injured worker’s pre-injury average weekly earnings.
The new Schedule 3 to the Workers Compensation Act 1987 provides the method for determining pre-injury average weekly earnings. Insurers and workers may now agree on a figure.
