What weekly benefits do I pay an injured worker?
Under the NSW Workers Insurance Scheme, we are required to make an initial decision on liability and commence provisional liability payments within 7 days of receiving notification of an injury. Approval of these payments does not constitute an admission of liability under the Workplace Injury Management and Workers Compensation Act 1998.
If a claim is accepted under provisional liability or outright, you are obliged to pay compensation to the injured worker at the current weekly wage (award) rate on their normal payday and to deduct tax as you would normal wages.
