About this consultation

The State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA) is seeking public and stakeholder feedback on a new workers compensation regulation to allow payment of legal costs in connection with work capacity decision reviews.

Input from our stakeholders is essential for SIRA to build a regulatory framework for how the new legal costs provision will operate.

The discussion paper outlines three regulatory options:

  • setting a maximum cost of specific legal services
  • establishing classes of reviews where legal costs are not payable
  • identifying circumstances where one party may be liable to pay the other’s legal costs

Some focus questions have been developed to guide the consultation. There is an online form below or you can download the PDF form and email your response to us at
