It is important that you know your rights when you are injured at work.

Any member who has a workers compensation claim, whether liability is accepted or declined, is urged to contact the USU Support Team for referral to the Union’s solicitors.

Speak to your delegate or organiser if you need assistance with this early referral or just ring the USU Support Team on 1300 136 604.

There can be many stages of injury management, but it all needs to be looked at from the point of view of understanding your legal rights and options.
