WorkCover: Stress claims and the COVID-19 response

With such low levels of infection in Queensland, the incidence of workplace infection is likely to be proportionately low. However, there has been a substantial upheaval in the workplace with businesses scrambling to respond to the rapidly changing government incentive payment scheme. The pressure on businesses to manage their workforces in this environment has resulted in enormous pressure on workers. Workplace psychiatric injuries are expected to emerge from this situation but, in what circumstances will a worker be able to meet the definition of “injury” under the Workers Compensation and Rehabilitation Act?
