Return to Work Act review completed and report provided to Minister

Wednesday 6 June 2018

On 4 June 2018, Hon John Mansfield AM QC advised that his RTW Act review report is complete and in the hands of Minister Lucas. Mr Mansfield advised as follows:

As you are aware, over the past six months I have undertaken the Independent Review of the Return to Work Act 2014 (the Act), as required by section 203 of the Act.

I confirm that the Review has been completed and that the results of the Review are embodied in a written report. Today I delivered my report to the Treasurer, the Hon Rob Lucas MLC, as the Minister responsible for the Act.

The Treasurer must cause a copy of the report to be laid before both Houses of Parliament within 12 sitting days after receiving the report. Once this has happened I will advise you and provide you with details of where the report can be viewed.

I would again like to thank you for your contribution to the Review.

The 12 sitting day deadline for tabling the report in Parliament means that it must be tabled no later than 26 July 2018. Once tabled, the report can be made public.
