MBIE submissions for Accident Compensation Act (2001): Schedule 2
As part of our work on the ACC project and our valued new relationship with Barbara Edmonds, Minister of Internal Affairs, the UFBA are excited that today at 0900hrs the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment called for public submissions for conditions that should be added to the Accident Compensation Act (2001): Schedule 2.
For UFBA members this includes, amoung other things, firefighter cancers.
We are also working with Government on getting volunteer firefighters recognised as “employees” when operational for the purposes of this Act.
There is a tight timeline on this submission, so we are working at pace and invite all our members to make contact who could add to this submission.
Please email Connect@ufba.org.nz if you would like to contribute to this submission.
