Foyle Legal workers compensation benefits stopped

Foyle Legal often sees workers who have had their workers compensation weekly payments discontinued, and after discussing the situation with those workers it becomes clear the workers compensation weekly payments have been discontinued in a manner which is illegal. The reason why this is happening is unclear but it may well be due to insurer.

This problem has been recognised by WorkCover, the Workers Compensation Court in Western Australia. WorkCover has issued a notice stating that section 61 of the Workers’ Compensation and Injury Management Act 1981 (the Act) is to limit the circumstances in which the employer may unilaterally discontinue or reduce weekly payments without the consent of the worker, a payment
direction made by a conciliation officer or an order of an Arbitrator.

Foyle Legal has recently prepared a video regarding the necessary notice under Section 61 called a Notice To Worker of Intention To Discontinue or Reduce Payments. This video can be viewed below.

If you have stopped working for an employer and payment was cancelled, or you simple need help with your initial claim, contact us today.

Foyle Legal went above and beyond to make sure I was fairly compensated after a VOC claim.

They will hold your hand through the entire process.

You don't see many reviews for them in relation to VOC, however I can comment that they are perfect and have your best interests at heart.

I had two workers compensation claims which were disputed by the insurer. I would not have been able to resolve my cases as successfully without the help of Foyle Legal.
