Your obligations

Under NSW workers compensation legislation every employer is required to:

  • have workers compensation insurance1
  • display the If you get injured at work poster
  • have a documented Return to Work program describing the steps you will take if a worker is injured
  • maintain a record of work-related injuries
  • notify your insurer of all workplace injuries within 48 hours
  • participate in the development of the workers injury management plan, written by your insurer, and comply with your obligations in the plan
  • provide suitable work (as far as reasonably practicable) when a worker is able to return to work, either on a full-time or part-time basis2
  • provide suitable work that is (as far as reasonably practicable) the same as or equivalent to the work being performed at the time of the injury2.
  • an employer must not dismiss a worker because of a work related injury within six months from when the worker first became unfit as a result of the injury.3
