I was having a chat with one of the ladies from Workcover late last week and she was telling me that there are a lot of businesses who do not have Workcover insurance for their employees.
I find this amazing for two reasons, firstly it’s compulsory for all businesses who employ staff to have some sort of Workcover insurance (unless you are an approved “self-insurer”) and secondly, because if one of your employees is hurt at work and you don’t have cover you have the potential to lose everything.
