On 17 September 2015 the new workers’ compensation law was passed by Parliament and has been hailed as the Queensland Government’s fulfilment of a promise to restore the rights of Queensland’s injured workers.

The Workers’ Compensation and Rehabilitation and Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2015 attempts to “reinstate common law rights for injured workers that were affected by changes made by the Workers’ Compensation and Rehabilitation and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2013 (the 2013 Amendment Act)”.

The bill also attempts to “establish the ability to provide additional compensation to particular workers impacted by the operation of the common law threshold”.
