WorkCover crackdown yields results

A crackdown on dishonest claims and fraud in the former WorkCover scheme has led to an unprecedented number of workers facing legal action, convictions and fines.

Figures provided to Business Insight by ReturnToWorkSA – the renamed WorkCoverSA – reveal a substantial increase in compliance and enforcement activity over the past two years with referrals of suspicious activity rising from 342 in 2013-14 to 493 in the nine months of the current financial year.
