If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19, you must give your employer notice.
You need to do this via an incident report, if these exist at your workplace, and email your supervisor ASAP that you reasonably believe you've been exposed during the course of your duties and you may need to make a Workers Compensation claim.
After you've done this, contact us ASAP via HACSUassist for advice email@example.com or 1300 880 032.
