The Australian Government is working to change the delivery of workers compensation arrangements for Norfolk Island to a new service provider.
From 1 July 2016, the local workers compensation scheme has been delivered by Norfolk Island Regional Council on behalf of the Australian Government. Due to potential conflict of interest issues as the Island's largest employer, the Council has advised the Department they are not in a position to provide this service on behalf of the Australian Government into the future.
The department is now working with the Council to move the workers compensation arrangements to the new service provider following an approach to market to find a service delivery partner to administer the scheme.
