Watch out for the WorkReady trap

Post is telling people, if you are injured at work, go to the company doctor (FND), it’s free. If the company doctor sends you to a specialist, Post won’t pay for the specialist consultation. It is the same story for ultrasounds, scans, x-rays or other diagnostic procedures, or consultation with other parties. Post won’t pay.


Injured workers unwittingly fall into the WorkReady trap when they agree to go to the company doctor. Specialist reports, scans etc will be paid when and if the compensation claim is approved, but claims are not always approved.

Some workers have also complained of aggressive behaviour towards them since going onto Workready.

Our advice - If you are injured at work, go to your own doctor.
