  1. WorkSafe Victoria has announced a new agent panel to manage workplace injury insurance claims and premium collection from 4pm 30 June 2016.

    The new agent panel will comprise of:

    – Allianz Australia Workers’ Compensation (Victoria) Ltd (Allianz);
    – CGU Workers Compensation (Vic) Limited (CGU); …
    – Employers Mutual Vic Pty Ltd (EML);
    – Gallagher Bassett Services Workers Compensation Vic Pty Ltd (GBS);
    – Xchanging Integrated Services Victoria Pty Ltd (Xchanging).

    Employers Mutual Vic Pty Ltd (who also manage workplace injury insurance claims in NSW and SA) is the new insurance agent to be part of the panel. Therefore, QBE is the insurance agent that has failed to renew their license.

    WorkSafe insurance registrations and claims currently managed by QBE will be moved to either Xchanging or Employers Mutual effective from 4pm 30 June 2016.

  2. Please read on…The first thing you should know is this,

    “When an Insurer disputes liability for a workers compensation claim under the Workers Compensation and Injury Management Act 1981, they are required to issue a form 3B- Insurers Notice that liability is disputed.”

    Above is a direct quote from the Attorney General of W.A. himself, Hon Michael Mischin, on 13 August 2013  (please see attached Hansard).

    Allianz & Work Cover themselves agree (see attached).

    SO, IS IT REALLY THAT BIG OF A DEAL IF THE INSURER DOESNT LODGE A FORM 3B?

    ABSOLUTELY! This is a Statutory Regulations form for a reason. It is NOT without purpose, quite the opposite. It cannot be stressed enough – This form is VITAL because it requires the Insurer to answer a deliberately selected set of questions, advising as to why & on what grounds they are disputing liability of a workers injuries and most importantly, of which
    provisions of the Workers’ Compensation and Injury Management Act 1981 they intend to rely on to dispute liability in relation to your injury.

    If your Work Cover claim is said to be “disputed” but the Insurer has NOT issued a form 3B (pursuant to s57A (3)(B) of the WCIMA of W.A.), then they arent lawfully or even officially, “dusputing” your claim at all because they haven’t filled “Insurers Notice that liability is disputed”, the title speaks for itself don’t you think .
    Your Workers Rights are being violated and not only by the Insurer but by Work Cover W.A., as they are KNOWINGLY neglecting their duty to ensure compliance under the Act & we are all being denied our right to a fair & just process.

    This is for all people who have, or have had, a Workers Compensation Claim, in Western Australia, whose employer is insured & whose Insurer supposedly “disputes” liability, yet has NOT issued a statutory regulations form 3B-Insurers Notice That Liability Is Disputed (pursuant to s57A (3)(B) of the WCIMA, W.A.).
