Helping You Recover booklet

The Helping you recover booklet is now available to guide both employees and supervisors through the workers' compensation and return to work process.

This booklet is designed to help achieve successful recovery outcomes for employees by describing the steps involved when a claim for compensation is lodged, outlining individual roles in the process and setting expectations of Comcare, the employee and the supervisor.

By informing and engaging both employees and supervisors early in the workers' compensation process, the booklet supports a collaborative approach to return to work and health.

The Helping you recover booklet provides guidance on:

  • the health benefits of work
  • roles and responsibilities of Comcare, the employee and supervisor
  • the workers' compensation processes, both prior to and after claim acceptance
  • expectations of Comcare, the employee and the supervisor
  • where to go for further support.

To make it easier to find the most relevant information, the booklet has two parts 'What I need to know as an employee' and 'What I need to know as a supervisor'.

Helping you recover is now available on Comcare's website and will be provided to all employees when a new claim is lodged.
