This report supports an independent review of the South Australian workers rehabilitation and compensation legislation - it highlights the need for updating and reviewing the SA WRAC legislation to reform the scheme to make it fully-funded, fair to workers and affordable to business.

Divided into four sections:
  • Return to work - enhancing return to work incentives and reducing disputation to improve return to work outcomes and the financial sustainability of the Scheme
  • Levy - strengthening the levy system’s effectiveness to ensure the fair and efficient collection of employer levies with incentives aligned to improve injury prevention in high risk industries
  • Self-insurance - modernising self-insurance arrangements to ensure effective regulation of this significant component of the Scheme
  • Other proposed legislative change - making a number of technical adjustments and other minor improvements to the WRAC Act.

Includes supplement June 2007.
