The report released today by the Parliamentary Committee inquiry into WorkCover bullying confirms what many workers and WorkCover employees have known for some time - it is an organisation in chaos with an entrenched culture of bullying that is failing in its task of protecting NSW workers.
Greens MP and Industrial Relations Spokesperson David Shoebridge said:
"When the Greens called for this inquiry it was in response to many concerning reports of bullying within WorkCover.
"With this unanimous report it is now a matter of public record that bullying within WorkCover is rife and senior management have consistently failed to address this.
"WorkCover, which is meant to be regulating work safety across the state, has shown itself unable to even address bullying in its own ranks.
