Things your workers compensation insurer won’t tell you

Things your workers compensation insurer won’t tell you

If you’re hurt at work and you make a workers compensation claim here’s a few things the insurer won’t tell you:

  1. You can nominate which doctor you see.  The employer can’t tell you what doctor to see.
  2. You don’t have to let the insurer, or any other person come to your doctor appointments with you.
  3. You don’t have to explain to your employer why you can’t do your job or your full job.  That is what the medical certificate is for.
  4. You shouldn’t do anything at work that your certificate says you can’t do.

Some people feel bullied into doing things that don’t feel right.  If you’re one of those people give Ashley Davey at Bale Boshev a call on (02) 49 691 522.

He’ll look after you.
