Workers Compensation Case Commentary: Views on serious and wilful misconduct

This recent decision in the Tribunal deals with what an employer must establish when relying on the “Serious and Wilful Misconduct” provision for the purpose of a section 81A referral. Traditionally, the threshold in utilising that section was at a high standard. This case steps away from that threshold and explores whether the employer has a liability to prove the elements of that section.
