The Return to Work Act 2014 establishes the Return to Work scheme. It provides the framework for the delivery of support and services to people who have suffered a work injury to assist them to recover from their injury and return to work. The Act also outlines employer insurance registration and premium collection provisions, as well as the dispute resolution system.

The Act details the roles and obligations of workers, employers and ReturnToWorkSA in supporting recovery and return to work. The Return to Work Regulations 2015 provide more detail on different aspects of the Act.

ReturnToWorkSA is established through the Return to Work Corporation of South Australia Act 1994. This Act sets out ReturnToWorkSA's objectives, powers, duties, functions, status and interaction with other bodies.

All South Australian Acts and regulations are available on the South Australian Government's legislation website.
