Page 378: The paragraph beginning ‘In NSW...’ should read:
In NSW, the legislation in force is the Workers Compensation Act 1987 (NSW). This abolished an employee’s entitlement to damages for an injury in respect of which the employer was liable to pay workers compensation. Common law rights were partially restored by the Workers Compensation (Benefits) Amendment Act 1989 (NSW). Since then, common law rights have had varying thresholds and entitlements. A 15% threshold for permanent impairment was introduced by the Workers Compensation Legislation Further Amendment Act 2001 (NSW) and continues to apply. Compensation for non-economic loss in the context of common law claims was abolished. Where the claim is not a common law claim, statutory compensation for permanent impairment may be awarded if the physical injury exceeds a threshold of 10% whole person impairment; for psychological/ psychiatric injury, the threshold is 15% whole person impairment.
 The latest amendment is the Regulatory and Other Legislation (Amendments and Repeals) Act 2016 (NSW).
