The ILARS Review Issues Paper has been published.
It is available here.
The Paper discusses a range of aspects of the ILARS system including the processes for approval of lawyers, the way that funding grants are structured, appeals, disbursements and the role of early solutions.
You are invited to provide feedback on the Paper. Your feedback will inform the ILARS Review which is examining how effectively current arrangements, in particular the ILARS Funding Guidelines, enable the effective achievement of the statutory purpose of the ILARS scheme, that is:
- to provide funding for legal and associated costs for workers seeking advice regarding the decisions of insurers under workers compensation legislation in NSW; and
- to provide assistance in finding early solutions for disputes between workers and insurers.
The Review is also examining how effectively current arrangements promote relevant workers compensation system objectives.
