Join us for our next Business At Sunrise with Michael O'Brien, IR Specialist from CCIQ.
In Queensland, the Workers' Compensation Scheme is regulated by the Workers' Compensation Regulator. Under this, employers are required to have workers compensation insurance to ensure their employees can access compensation should they sustain a workplace injury or illness. CCIQ has been entrusted by the Workers' Compensation Regulator (Office of Industrial Relations) to deliver a free workers compensation information service to Queensland employers.
Michael will discuss how CCIQ can assist Queensland businesses needing help to navigate workers’ compensation through the free advice line. This dedicated advice line – run by CCIQ for Q-COMP – provides free advice and interpretation about the workers’ compensation process. CCIQ advisors can help you with information about WorkCover claims, how to handle returning to work, case reviews and appeals processes, and more. They can also help you understand the steps in the process, where to find relevant information and who to speak to at different points along the way.
