Age based limits on workers' comp finally removed

WA unions win long-fought for battle as WA abolishes age-based limits on workers' compensation entitlements.

Amendments to the Workers’ Compensation and Injury Management Act 1981 have significantly improved the status of older workers within the State’s workers' compensation scheme with all workers now having the same entitlements to compensation regardless of their age.

Previously the scheme discriminated against older workers by limiting the entitlement of injured workers aged 64 or more to only one year of income payments.
