The Personal Injury Commission is seeking applications from suitably qualified legal practitioners for appointment as Members of the Workers Compensation Division

The Personal Injury Commission (Commission) resolves disputes between people injured in motor accidents and workplaces in NSW, insurers and employers. The Commission is an independent statutory tribunal within the New South Wales justice system, committed to providing a transparent and independent dispute resolution service. The Commission exercises functions in two divisions – the Motor Accidents Division and the Workers Compensation Division.

Applications are sought from suitably qualified and experienced persons for appointment as General Members (Sessional) in the Workers Compensation Division. Sessional General Members may be based in Sydney or regional locations. Some travel may be required.

Sessional General Members are remunerated under a fee schedule. Appointments may be made for terms up to five years, with eligibility for reappointment.

Applicants for appointment as a General Member will be qualified legal practitioners of at least 5 years’ standing or, in the opinion of the Minister, possess special knowledge, skill or expertise. Ideally applicants will have sound knowledge of workers compensation law and practice, coupled with demonstrated alternative dispute resolution and facilitation skills and experience.
