TEACHERS — WORKERS' COMPENSATION
826. Hon CHARLES SMITH to the Minister for Education and
I refer to the WAtoday article of 1
May 2019 titled ''Veteran teacher stripped of sick leave after PTSD
diagnosis wins unfair dismissal case''.
(1) How many teachers are currently
off work on workers' compensation claims in Western Australia?
(2) How many
applications for workers' compensation are currently being assessed
from teachers currently off work?
(3) How many of
those teachers currently receiving workers' compensation are receiving
the compensation due to issues related to mental health?
(4) How many
critical incident reports have been submitted to date compared with this time
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question. However, I am unable to provide an answer today,
as the Department of Education needs to seek the information that the member is
looking for from RiskCover. This information is unable to be provided in the
time frame available today. I undertake to provide an answer to this question
on 20 August 2019.
