Workers compensation indexation

Fri Sep 30 2016

The Workers Compensation (Indexation of Amounts) Amendment Order 2016 (NSW) and the Workers Compensation Amendment (Latest Index Number) Regulation (No.2) 2016 will commence on 1 October 2016 and will be published on the Legislation NSW website. The object of the first order is to notify the number that equates to the factor B/C - used in the formula for calculating the variation of the weekly payment to be paid to a worker under section 82A of the Workers Compensation Act 1987. That section provides that weekly payments are to be varied on 1 April and 1 October in each year. The second order updates a number used in the indexation of benefits.
