Workers compensation legislative instruments
The Workplace Injury Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2013 (WIRC Act) allows legislative instruments to be made to support the operation of the WIRC Act and provide further instructions or guidelines.
In 2014, some legislative instruments previously made under the Accident Compensation Act 1985 were carried over by the Workplace Injury Rehabilitation and Compensation (Savings and Transitional Regulations) 2014 to ensure their continued application after the commencement of the WIRC Act on 1 July 2014.
These legislative instruments have been made under the WIRC Act to ensure their operation after 1 July 2016.
