Yes, the work experience person may work at various host employers, as long as we are made aware of all employers and the policy schedule is noted accordingly.

Please note: Duties and tasks must be the same at each employer and the industry must be the same.

All known host employers should be noted at the commencement of a policy, otherwise a further policy fee may be incurred.

Due to the nature of work experience duties, we realise that a day-to-day routine, or continuous days of work, may not be available. Therefore there are 5 different periods of cover:

  • 15 days to be worked over 6 months
  • 30 days to be worked over 6 month
  • 3 months unlimited
  • 6 months unlimited
  • 9 months unlimited

This allows the volunteer and host employer more flexibility.

Under the various states and their Workers Compensation Acts, there is no requirement to cover work experience persons or voluntary workers. They would not be deemed a worker, as they do not generate an income for their services.

Persons between the ages of 14-80 undertaking unpaid work experience positions with a host employer.
