Workers’ Compensation – A glimpse of things to come: employer forced to re-hire worker

The first determination of the South Australian Employment Tribunal (SAET) in respect of an application under Section 18 of the Return to Work Act 2014 (RTW Act) has been handed down.

In the case of Walmsley v Crown Equipment Pty Ltd [2016] SAET 4, the employer had provided the worker with a collation of duties taken from other positions while awaiting his recovery. This arrangement went on for some time. When the employer eventually formed the view that the worker could never return to his pre-injury role, the worker was dismissed.
