Despite a hard-fought union campaign, the NSW Workers Compensation Legislation Amendment Bill 2012 came into effect on 19 June 2012. The amendment effectively removed workers' compensation coverage for employees travelling to and from their place of employment, except in special circumstances.
The HSU provides Journey Personal Accident Insurance for all financial members of the union to ensure that no HSU member is exposed to a loss of income if injured on the journey to and from work.
This information is intended to be a guide only and does not supersede the policy issued by the underwriter, AIG. If you have any questions regarding specific cover, please contact the HSU to discuss.
HSU Journey Personal Accident Insurance will provide HSU financial members withincome protection of up to 85% of your average weekly income to a maximum of $1500 per week, including all your regular allowances and penalties.
