PostSubject: Return to work before recovery   Mon Jun 04, 2007 10:00 am

I have noticed WorkCover has a new advertising campaign that the worker should talk to thier Doctors and Employers to get back to work before they are fully recovered. What would happen if a co-worker is injured because of a injured workers incapacity/disability, or the injured worker aggrevates their injury? Would the Doctor and the employer be open to a law suit? Who writes these WorkCover Advertising campaigns and have they read the Medibank Private recent report?

PostSubject: Return to work on painkillers   Mon Jun 04, 2007 10:02 am

I had a friend who retruned to work while he was still unwell. The doctor prescribed him heavy painkillers and he was that out of it one day when using a drill he drilled a hole through his hand.
Lucky for him he was able to make another workcover claim for it.
