Media release | WIRO Welcomes Workers Compensation Review

The Workers Compensation Independent Review Office (WIRO) has welcomed news that the Standing Committee on Law and Justice will move forward its review of the workers compensation scheme, with a report due in November of this year. 

The Committee today resolved to inquire into the feasibility of a consolidated Personal Injury Tribunal for Compulsory Third Party and Workers Compensation dispute resolution matters. 

Worker’s Compensation Independent Review Officer Kim Garling said today that he looked forward to assisting the committee with its inquiry. 

“It’s gratifying to see the entire Committee place such importance on the welfare of injured workers,” Garling said.  

In the past 5 years WIRO  has assisted more than 80,000 injured workers, and their employers, resolve disputes with insurers.
