SEAFARERS SAFETY REHABILITATION AND COMPENSATION DIRECTIONS 2006 (1)

 

I, KEVIN JAMES ANDREWS, Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations, give these directions to the Seafarers Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Authority (Seacare Authority) under section 107 of the Seafarers Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 1992 (Seafarers Act).

 

Dated:         24/8/       2006

1.      Name of Directions

These Directions are the Seafarers Safety Rehabilitation and Compensation Directions 2006 (1).

 

2.      Commencement

This instrument commences on the day after it is registered on the Federal Register of Legislative Instruments.

 

3.      Directions

I direct that the Seacare Authority amend its Exemption Guidelines so that if workers’ compensation insurance is available to a relevant employer under a State or Territory scheme, at a cost lower than that available under the Seacare scheme, then this is a primary factor in determining an application for exemption under section 20A of the Seafarers Act.
