WorkCover SA CEO quits
WorkCover SA will not reveal the time remaining on his contract because it says the terms and conditions are confidential.
Opposition finance spokesman Rob Lucas says WorkCover’s latest financial results are expected to show a further deterioration.
“There are major problems clearly between the Government, the minister, the board, and the management of WorkCover,” he said.
“I think the Government obviously doesn’t want to accept responsibility and blame itself and so it’s always convenient to blame either the board or the management of WorkCover for the problems.
“We also understand that the latest actuarial results for the period ended the 30th of June should now have been received by the board, and the minister is probably aware of those results as well, and our understanding is they’re likely to see a further deterioration in the financial position of WorkCover.”
