Claiming compensation with a fly in-fly out job

Making a workers’ compensation claim when you’re in a fly in-fly out (FIFO) job can be an additional level of legal red tape, so it pays to seek legal advice as soon as possible.

Maurice Blackburn is a national law firm, so we have a local lawyer who can help you look at the big picture and ensure you make a claim under the compensation scheme that will get you the best outcome. Depending on your employer, you may be covered by the national Comcare Scheme, or by a state-based workers’ compensation scheme. If you’re under a state scheme, you may have different entitlements depending on:

  • the state where you usually work
  • the state where you are usually based for that employment
  • the state where your employer’s head office is located.
