Standard cover for employers

Workplace Cover is our standard cover for all employers. It provides cover for your employees' rehabilitation and weekly compensation after an injury. It insures and protects your most important assets – you and your people.

How you get Workplace Cover

You're automatically covered under Workplace Cover when you take on staff and become an employer. This is paid for from your Work levy.

What Workplace Cover gives you

With Workplace Cover, you'll get:

  • subsidised medical care for your staff’s work related injuries
  • up to 80% of your employee’s salary covered while they can't work 
  • injury prevention schemes.

Paying for Workplace Cover

You’ll receive an invoice from us every year based on your liable payroll filed with Inland Revenue. This invoice includes both your final levy and a provisional levy.

Explaining your invoice

Calculating how much you need to pay

Inland Revenue provides us with a summary of your payroll information. We use this combined with your CU (what work you do and the industry you’re in) to calculate your levy. For many businesses we also take into account your claims history. Find out how to calculate your levy.:
