Workers compensation claims - information for third parties

Overview

If you are requesting workers compensation information on behalf of a third party (for example, if you a re a solicitor requesting information on behalf of a client), you need to submit a WorkCover Tasmania Right to Information Application.

You will need to provide authorisation from the third party.

You will also need to include proof of identity from the third party (for example, a copy of their current driver's licence).

There is a fee for Right to Information applications - please see 'Making an application for assessed disclosure' (external link) on the Department of Justice website for the current application fee.  In certain circumstances you may apply to have the fee waived.  These circumstances are:

  • Financial hardship (for example, if you hold a concession card such as a Government Health Care Card or a Pension Card); or
  • You are a Member of Parliament requesting the information in relation to official business; or
  • You are able to prove that you intend to use the information for general public interest or benefit.
