    Duties of your employer

    Employers and business owners are responsible for the safety of their employees at the work premises. If your employer fails to adhere to the health and safety guidelines that safeguard employees from accidents and you are injured whilst performing your work duties, you may be entitled to file a claim.

    Some of the duties of an employer include:

    • Providing a clean and tidy working environment
    • Providing employees with proper training with technical tasks such as manual lifting of heavy objects
    • Providing suitable protective clothing and safety gear where necessary
    • Maintaining tools, equipment and machinery in good working condition

    If your employer has failed to observe these responsibilities and you sustain a workplace injury, then it is your right to seek compensation. All employees including temporary and casual employees reserve the right to make a work injury claim. You can also make a claim if your workplace injury was caused by a co-worker.

    Can I be sacked making a claim against my employer?

    Often, employees are hesitant about making a compensation claim against their employer, as they are afraid of the repercussions such as being victimised or being dismissed from work. It is important to remember that there are laws protecting employees from unfair dismissal and making a claim does not constitute reasonable grounds for dismissal. The law requires all employers and business owners to take out an Employers Liability Insurance plan to protect themselves from liability in the event that a member of staff is injured. This means that if a successful claimant is awarded compensation, it is the insurance company and not the employer that will pay out the compensation.
