workers compensation

Workers compensation is a system where workers get financial support if they're injured at work, managed by state or territory-based organisations.

The workers compensation system is designed to help employees who suffer from injuries or illnesses due to their job. It includes covering medical expenses and providing income support while they recover. Each Australian state and territory has its own rules and organisation for handling these claims. The aim is to support workers financially during their recovery period and help them return to work.
