The Queensland Treasurer, Curtis Pitt, on 15 July 2015 introduced into Queensland Parliament the Workers’ Compensation & Rehabilitation and Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2015 (Qld) (the Bill). The Bill makes a number of amendments to the Workers’ Compensation & Rehabilitation Act 2003 (Qld) (WC&RA), the most significant of which is clause 6 which will see the removal from the WC&RA of the requirement for a worker’s injury to have an assessed degree of permanent impairment (DPI) of more than 5% in order for a worker to be entitled to bring a common law claim against their employer. The amendment is proposed to be back dated to commence on 31 January 2015 (the date the Qld state election was held).
