Register for cover
Do I need to register?
If you operate a business that employs workers who usually work in, or are based in South Australia, it's likely you will need to register with ReturnToWorkSA. This includes businesses who are based outside of South Australia but who employ workers in the state.
You must register for work injury insurance cover within 14 days of employing someone that meets the definition of a worker. You may apply for cover prior to employing workers.
Note: Reference to a worker includes family members who may be employed by a business.
Businesses that are based outside of South Australia or do not have locations in South Australia may be required to register. For guidance on coverage for interstate workers, read our Insurance cover for cross-border workers guide.
If you will pay your workers less than $12,809 in total for the 2018-19 financial year, you do not need to register. In this circumstance, if one of your workers is injured at work, you must contact us to report the injury and at this time you will need to register and pay our minimum premium.
