Decisions of the Workers Compensation Commission

The Commission is committed to the publication of its decisions on its website and on the Australasian Legal Information Institute (AustLII) website to ensure transparency, accountability, education and guidance to parties on all matters within the jurisdiction of the Commission.

The Commission operates under a presumption in favour of publication of decisions.

The Commission may in exceptional circumstances, either at the request of a party made in writing or of its own motion, withhold from publication all or part of a decision if it is desirable to do so because of the confidential or sensitive nature of the information in the decision or for any other reason.

The final decision concerning whether a decision should be withheld from publication rests with the Commission.
