Who pays workers’ compensation in Queensland?

A majority of Queensland employees are covered by WorkCover Queensland for any work-related injuries they may suffer.

In the event of a work-related injury, any approved weekly payments will be made by WorkCover Queensland.

Remember, under WorkCover it doesn’t matter whether the injury occurs at the employer’s fault or at the worker’s fault.

Some Queensland employers may also be "self-insurers".
