long story short
i worked for a lady who was a chardonady drinking wanna be pretentious

bought a business that she has no idea how to run
i was stressed, agitated and my anxiety was bad...

i told her - im going on stress leave and taking the matter to fair work

she fired me the day after i asked her to submit my worcover claim

Wow, congratulations but I can confirm that a one week turnover for WC is almost unheard of...particularly at the moment.

Did you have a psych IME ?

WHoah! That is amazing! We are looking at about 9 months here. Any mental health/stress claims have to see designated psychiatrists before the claim will be determined. The time frame and the system are sometimes almost as stress-inducing than the original injury!

Good news for you!
Psych applications are regularly much more difficult to prove.

My dad also got good Workcover news.  His claim for compensation for Mesothelioma (asbestos cancer) was approved by Workcover, despite him being self employed for most of his career.  Not sure of the payout yet, but can base our expectations on what the solicitor suggests.  Will help mum and dad be more comfortable as dad dies.  Will ease dad's mind too, as my parents don't have much.

That's really good news, or as good as it can get for you, I guess.

Peace of mind for your Dad will be a big thing.

There is generally a process by which WC eventually may or may not take responsibility for the claim and only comes to fruition after independent medical examinations which conclude that the employer is liable for the injury. This takes months or years usually.
This is especially the case when the injury is a psychological one.

You struck gold by the sounds elmo.

That is wonderful news Jerry.
