WorkCover 2011 Special Report - The Year of Uncertainty, the Rabbit's Been Caught in the Spotlight


In March John Walsh (Managing Partner, Donaldson Walsh Lawyers) wrote that employers and workers alike face another year of uncertainty with a range of issues likely to impact upon the troublesome WorkCover Scheme in South Australia.

John reflected upon Scheme performance, the Scheme review which is currently being completed and the impact upon the Scheme if the Supreme Court determines that the Medical Panel cannot bind the Tribunal.

In this report John will discuss further upheavals which give cause for concern and justify his view that we are certainly, so far as WorkCover is concerned, experiencing a year of uncertainty.
