Easier access to compensation for NSW firefighters

notice | 23/11/2018

The Workers Compensation Legislation Amendment (Firefighters) Bill 2018 has been passed by the NSW Parliament.

The new law enables eligible firefighters diagnosed with one of 12 specified primary cancers, and who meet applicable employment or volunteer service periods, to automatically be presumed to have acquired that cancer because of their firefighting work or service.
