Decision 102/2004: Collins Vs Acc

The significance of Collins is that claimants should check:
  • that their IRP actually contains substantive rehabilitation, such as treatment or vocational rehabilitation. ACC are in the habit of sending IRPs that don't commit it to actually providing any rehabilitation, then moving swiftly to the exit process. In Mrs Collins' case, ACC had agreed to provide treatment, which was incomplete at the time ACC decided to start WCAP.
  • has ACC correctly exercised its discretionary power to start WCAP/VI? Has it taken all relevant factors into consideration, such as outstanding treatment; has it taken irrelevant factors into account, such as KPIs for staff linked to exists; is its decision unreasonable?
  • Are there any outstanding rehabilitation issues that have not been completed?

Collins isn't really groundbreaking but it does serve as a reminder that ACC does actually have to make some attempt at rehabilitating claimants before it starts to kick them off.

Kind regards
