Monday 6 April 2009

The Rules Committee of the Workers Compensation Tribunal, chaired by His Honour Judge Gilchrist, has met with representatives of SISA, the Local Government Association Workers Compensation Scheme and the public sector.

The meeting, expected to be the first in a schedule of regular meetings between the Committee and stakeholders to discuss procedural issues, addressed the new WCT Rule 19 and the interface between the Tribunal and Medical Panels SA.

As a result of this meeting, a number of key points and 'grey' areas were identified that compensating authorities need to be aware of. SISA will prepare some guidance notes for members on the basis of our discussions with the Rules Committee.
