15 July, 2022

IEU support successfully overturns WorkCover decision after it refused to cover the surgery costs of member injured at work.

IEU-QNT Industrial Officer Rosey Sorbello said the member injured their ankle on a school excursion.

“The member was injured while carrying out their ordinary duties and their claim was initially accepted by WorkCover,” Rosey said.

“However, the injury did not get better and significantly impacted how the member could undertake their daily duties and tasks at work.
