Decisions about payments of compensation

If the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission or Industrial Court decides that an insurer is not liable to pay compensation to a worker or claimant, then that worker or claimant who received compensation doesn't have to pay it back to the insurer (s.566, Workers' Compensation and Rehabilitation Act 2003).

Note: this does not apply in cases where the worker is convicted of fraud.

Employers should contact their insurer to discuss the financial impact of the decision.
