Should NT be included for a journey claim?

Should the Northern Territory be included for a journey claim? I understand that a journey claim occurs where workers’ compensation is claimed for a personal injury received by an employee on their journey to and from their place of residence to work.

But for a journey claim to qualify there can be no interruption to the journey or substantial deviation made for any reason unconnected with the employee’s employment. If the journey is interrupted the journey will not qualify for cover.

Journey claims can be claimed in the Australian Capital Territory and Queensland, but are not covered in South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria, New South Wales and Western Australia (although other options for claiming compensation apply through statutory or common law rights).

We are trying to confirm our rights if an employee provides a non-negative result. Can we stand them down without pay (with the option to access personal leave), as they are considered unfit for work? Or would we have to stand them down on pay as we are directing them not to attend the workplace?

Should NT be included for a journey claim?

Should the Northern Territory be included for a journey claim? I understand that a journey claim occurs where workers’ compensation is claimed for a personal injury received by an employee on their journey to and from their place of residence to work.

But for a journey claim to qualify there can be no interruption to the journey or substantial deviation made for any reason unconnected with the employee’s employment. If the journey is interrupted the journey will not qualify for cover.

Journey claims can be claimed in the Australian Capital Territory and Queensland, but are not covered in South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria, New South Wales and Western Australia (although other options for claiming compensation apply through statutory or common law rights).

Our organisation is in the construction industry, which requires workers be free from the effects of drugs or alcohol, and present a negative test result. We are trying to confirm our rights if an employee provides a non-negative result. Can we stand them down without pay (with the option to access personal leave), as they are considered unfit for work? Or would we have to stand them down on pay as we are directing them not to attend the workplace?

Should the Northern Territory be included for a journey claim? I understand that a journey claim occurs where workers’ compensation is claimed for a personal injury received by an employee on their journey to and from their place of residence to work.

But for a journey claim to qualify there can be no interruption to the journey or substantial deviation made for any reason unconnected with the employee’s employment. If the journey is interrupted the journey will not qualify for cover.

Journey claims can be claimed in the Australian Capital Territory and Queensland, but are not covered in South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria, New South Wales and Western Australia (although other options for claiming compensation apply through statutory or common law rights).

Drug and alcohol testing

Our organisation is in the construction industry, which requires workers be free from the effects of drugs or alcohol, and present a negative test result. We are trying to confirm our rights if an employee provides a non-negative result. Can we stand them down without pay (with the option to access personal leave), as they are considered unfit for work? Or would we have to stand them down on pay as we are directing them not to attend the workplace?
