THE WORKERS' COMPENSATION ACT 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 7 April 1914

THE WORKERS' COMPENSA TION ACT 1914. The defiBition includes nearly every person who is an employee. It does not include the clerk who is receiving more than £250 per annum, however, but it does include the man working as a bricklayer, if he is receiving Eiore .than that amount. All persons who aire engaged in manual labor will be covered by the Act, because the risk they undergo of accident is far greater than that of the man who does no manwel work. In addition to the clerk earning over £250 per annum 'the only other persons who will not be provided for under the Act will b6 the casual laborer who is en gaged for any work outside his em ployer's business. It would be very difficult to include such persons. For instance, a man whom a person engaged to carry his bag from a railway station, or a stray gardener who is given a small job, tidying up a garden will bo excluded from ita benefits. The domestic servant, however, will be covercd, and also all clerks in receipt of £250 or unde...
