As Australia prepares to send more troops to Iraq, tens of thousands of military personnel injured in recent years stand to lose their rights to lump sum compensation.
The Government is changing the definition of “impairment” in a way that could deny lump sum payouts to people with serious back or limb injuries. The compensation overhaul will also affect thousands of other Commonwealth employees.
I do hope we don’t follow the US with our number of wounded.
Shame HoWARd Shame.
