The NSW Workers Compensation System
Under the Workers Compensation Act 1987, injured workers are entitled to a range of compensation payments.
These benefits include:
1. Lump sum payments to compensate workers for permanent impairments;
2. Weekly payments of compensation while off work;
3. The cost of medical treatment; and
4. The cost of domestic assistance.
For example, a worker who has suffered a back injury while lifting at work may be entitled to a tax-free lump sum payment, in addition to his or her other benefits, as a result of this back injury.
