Employer FAQs

  • How do I lodge a claim review?
  • Can I apply for a review of my premium?
    • In certain cases you can have the premium decision made by WorkCover Queensland (WCQ) reviewed by the Workers' Compensation Regulator if you disagree with:
      • the WorkCover Industry Classification that has been used to calculate your premium
      • certain individuals being identified as workers for the purpose of calculating your premium
      • a reassessment of premium for this financial year or any of the three previous financial years
      • a penalty charged to you (after you have contacted WorkCover to waive or reduce the penalty)
      • a default assessment issued to you (after you have contacted WCQ to advise that you disagree with the assessment)
      • additional premium charged to you (after you have contacted WCQ to waive or reduce the additional premium).
    • If you are unsure about what has caused the increase in your premium please contact us on 1300 362 128.Lodge your review online

  • What are medical assessment tribunals?
    • Sometimes injured workers need to go to a medical assessment tribunal as part of their workers' compensation claim.
    • Medical assessment tribunals are run by the workers' Compensation Regulator's Tribunal Secretariat and involves an independent panel of doctors who make decisions about a work-related injury.
    • The decisions could be about a worker's ability to work, any degree of permanent impairment and any disfigurement as a result of their injury.
  • How do I take out Workers' compensation insurance?
    • Queensland employers must take out an accident insurance policy with WorkCover Queensland, unless they are a self-insured employer. This accident insurance policy insures them against the cost of compensating a worker who has a work-related injury or illness.
  • How do I appoint a RRTWC?
    • Recently the Workers' Compensation and Rehabilitation and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2013 was passed in Queensland parliament. The official assent of the Act has resulted in changes for rehabilitation and return to work coordinators and their employers.
