Barry O’Farrell is preparing to make severe cuts to benefits paid to people injured while they are at work.
These changes, if they become law, will force many people injured at work, through no fault of their own, into poverty.
The proposed cuts include:
» slashing lump sum benefits paid for injuries
» removing compensation for injuries suffered when travelling to
and from work
» stopping all payments for many workers with ongoing injuries
after 2.5 years of payments. MORE AND GET INVOLVED
