Workers compensation in Tasmania

The workers compensation law in Tasmania classes contractors as ‘workers’ for workers compensation laws if all of following three criteria are met:
  • the contract is for work in excess of $100; and
  • the contractor does not carry on a trade or business in their own name or a business name; and
  • the contractor does not subcontract the work or employ workers to do the work.
Note: If the contractor has their own valid personal accident insurance they will not be taken to be a ‘worker’. The contractor must, by law, tell the contract principal (the farmer) whether they have/don’t have personal accident insurance.
