Injury and leave entitlements
Starting work for the first time
If you're starting work for the first time, learn about your rights and responsibilities at work at the FairWork Australia online learning centre.
Most leave entitlement are covered by the Australian Government's Fair Work Act. Check whether you are entitled to leave, including vacation, sick and parental leave, when you can take it and what you should be paid, including leave loading on the Fairwork Ombudsman website.
Employee insurance for injury at work
The Return to Work scheme is funded through insurance premiums paid by businesses and provides treatment, care and support to people who have been injured at work.
If you are injured at work, seek any necessary medical treatment and let your employer know as soon as possible. Call your employer’s claims agent or ReturnToWorkSA on 13 18 55 as soon as possible to report your injury or start a work injury claim.
