Workers' Compensation


As the legal employer of the Indigenous trainee/apprentice, we handle all the Workers' Compensation paperwork. Any claims are processed against 'our' Workers' Compensation policy, and we bare the risk. We manage all WorkCover claims but you must still provide a safe work environment and meet all OH&S requirements.

Pay


We pay the Indigenous Australian Apprentice wages on a weekly basis, according to the specific requirements of the industry and manage all WorkCover claims and processes plus all other entitlements such as superannuation, tax and workplace insurance.
