A former Compensation Manager has blown the whistle on Australia Post to the Safety Rehabilitation and Compensation Commission (SRCC), the regulator of self-insurers under the SRC Act 1988.
He alleged that Managers had delayed decisions on workers’ compensation claims to benefit financially from meeting KPIs. The SRCC’s investigation found evidence of delays in processing claims to meet Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate targets in 2012/13 and 2013/14 (under the previous CEO Ahmed Fahour)
The regulator has now imposed new conditions on Australia Post.
The Victorian Branch of the union has been meeting with Compensation, Rehabilitation and Human Resources managers about the short-comings of their treatment of injured workers.
CAN AUSTRALIA POST CHANGE
THEIR LONG-STANDING CULTURE IN THE TREATMENT OF INJURED WORKERS?
We need to make them for the sake of our injured members. Please report any poor behaviour to the Union office on 9600 9100
