Does anyone know more info that could assist me with the below?
My Worker’s Compensation Claim for Stress leave due to bullying and harressment i was foprced to endure has been accepted s of the 14th of July for weekly payments and reimbursements.
The insurance company has advised me the employer has to pay the first 2 weeks as part of his premium and they have already paid my employer the rest of the back pay up until yesterday. but my employer has not given it to me. Instead he is continuing to play game, bully me, intimidate and create and inflict as much pain and suffering as possible. he paid 1 weekly payment on Monday and another weekly payment last night but is still short of 7 weeks owing and come tomorrow another week will be owed.
Ive contacted the insurer so many times and they are useless. When my claim was accepted, they allocated it to a case manager who was on leave travelling the US and is still over there. umm wtf? So i have been getting no where with them and so i’ve lodged with ACCS for concilation but that could be weeks before anything happens and i don’t have weeks. Is there any laws, departments that can do something more and enforce these payments from my employer or force the insure to make the payment on their behalf and chase the money back up off the employer..? Why am i made to suffer when i’ve had a accepted claim? Why would the insure enable my employer to bully further by allowing them to dictate my payments like this. They were aware of his history as i’d expressed concerns and explained of the financial hardship i was facing. I feel like i’ve exhausted all other avenues, so any assistance or further knowledge with fast tracking this back pay to me would be MASSIVELY appreciated.
