What is Workers Compensation insurance?

Workers Compensation Insurance is designed to cover the wages of your workers if they suffer a work-related injury. It is also intended to cover the medical expenses, treatment and rehabilitation costs.

Workers Compensation Insurance is compulsory in Australia and it is vital in keeping your business and employees secure in the event of a claim.
