7.2 Transport of the Body from an Overseas Place of Death.


There is no specific provision within the SRCA or either of its predecessors, in relation to the costs of return of a body from an overseas place of death for burial. However in certain circumstances the S16 provisions relating to the transport of an employee's body to a hospital, morgue, undertaker etc. can be held to apply to the costs of transport to a morgue etc in Australia. This matter is dealt with in more detail at 1.7 of this chapter of the Handbook.
