Employer access to workers' compensation documents and information

In accordance with legislation, for a purpose relating to the employment of a worker (e.g. a recruitment process, or to determine continuing employment), a person must not obtain or attempt to obtain a workers’ compensation document about the worker. In addition a person must not use or attempt to use a workers’ compensation document already obtained about a worker for employment purposes. Penalties apply.

However the above does not apply to a workers’ compensation document relating to a worker’s capacity to work, if the document is necessary to secure the worker’s rehabilitation or early return to work.
