The same applies in New Zealand.

Wouldn't it be great to have such an Advocate as Erin Brockovich in New Zealand?

I seem to be receiving more and more contact lately from individuals with Work Comp issues. I've decided it is time to add this issue to my web site to collect more data.
Workers' compensation is a system that exists in all states to protect workers who become hurt on the job or contract an illness as a result of their job. Fundamentally, the system works like this: when a worker becomes injured, rather than sue their employer, they can file a claim for compensation.

Workmen's comp is a no fault system that allows injured or sick employees to receive certain benefits (which normally includes medical care, payment of a certain percentage of a worker's wages, and, in many cases, the continuation of certain benefits) while not suing their employer (though, in some instances, an employer can still be sued, though generally this involves extreme negligence).

I have found that many people don't even realize if their specific issue is a Work Comp case or not.

WorkSafe Victoria appoints new Chief Executive

By WorkcoverVictim on October 12, 2012 in News, WorkSafe Vic

Senior business executive Denise Cosgrove has been appointed chief executive of WorkSafe Victoria. She is currently the general manager of the claims management area at the Accident Compensation Corporation in New Zealand… do we need to say more?


WorkSafe Victoria appoints new Chief Executive

Ms Cosgrove’s three-year appointment was announced today by WorkSafe chairperson, David Krasnostein.

“Ms Cosgrove has significant experience in accident compensation scheme management, including claims management, people leadership and strategy development,” Mr Krasnostein said.

The assistant treasurer Gordon Rich-Phillips MLC welcomed the announcement, which he said followed an extensive international search and recruitment process.

“Ms Cosgrove will bring valuable skills and knowledge to the business, which continues to deliver great outcomes for all Victorians, including the safest workplaces in the state’s history and the lowest WorkCover premiums in Australia,” Mr Rich-Phillips said.

Both Mr Rich-Phillips and Mr Krasnostein acknowledged the work of deputy chief executive and executive director of health and safety Ian Forsyth, who has been acting chief executive for the past three months.

“Over the past three months, Ian has taken on this added role and made sure WorkSafe has continued to have strong leadership,” Mr Krasnostein said.

Ms Cosgrove is currently the general manager of the claims management area at the Accident Compensation Corporation in New Zealand, which operates the country’s personal injury insurance scheme. Her appointment will take effect from 12 November.
