When a Workcover (Worksafe, Comcare) claim, a Workers Compensation claim, is made, the Workers Compensation claim process commences.

A return to work action with one of four objectives, to return them to same job, same employer, or same job different employer, or different job same employer, different job different employer.

In the longer term there is the civil claim for pain, suffering, and loss of capacity, which will also add to the business insurance cost, and give it a history.
The more that is paid out for time off work, injury claims, and civil damages claims, the greater the cost of insurance for the business, because it now has a history, rather than being classified as 'average'.

This means less profits for the business, less money to pay wages, a lower ability to see out the hard times and a less viable company.  It can place everyone's employment at risk.
Where a false claim is suspected the time to start protecting the business is now. Some indications include:

3. Signs of doctor shopping.
4. Information received that the person is undertaking work, or sporting activities, whilst totally incapacitated.
