WA passes workers’ comp payout reform

The WA Government has passed legislation to increase compensation for family members of people killed at work.

The lump sum payable to dependants will increase from $308,339 to $570,767, which is more than twice the amount paid for a non-fatal injury. A child’s allowance will increase from $58.90 to $135 per week.

De-facto partners will be granted the same compensation as spouses under the reforms, which are due to take effect next month.
