8.1.4 Coverage of war artists and entertainers - s5(6)

Under subsection 5(6) of the SRCA, the Minister for Employment can declare that persons who engage in activities or perform on behalf of the Commonwealth are covered under the SRCA.

In December 2015, the Minister for Employment issued the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation (Definition of Employee - War artists and Entertainers) Notice 2015 with effect from 17 December 2015. From this date, war artists and entertainers who support the ADF on operations are covered under the SRCA.

2.3 The Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 1988 (SRCA)

Rehabilitation services under SRCA have traditionally had a return to work focus for clients who had suffered a service related injury or disease.  Some non-return to work services were provided if they supported a client's independent living needs, or their general functioning. This has mainly entailed the assessment and provision of household and attendant care services, as well as the provision of alterations, modifications and aids and appliances as per section 39 of the SRCA.
