MILITARY REHABILITATION AND COMPENSATION ACT 2004 - SECT 62

Assistance in finding suitable work for other members and former members

             (1)  This section applies if:

                     (a)  a person:

                              (i)  is a part-time Reservist, a cadet or a declared member; or

                             (ii)  is a former member; and

                     (b)  the person is incapacitated for service or work as a result of a service injury or disease for which the Commission has accepted liability.

             (2)  To avoid doubt, this section applies to a person who is incapacitated as a result of an aggravated injury or disease even if the incapacity resulted from the original injury or disease and not from the aggravation or material contribution.

             (3)  The person's rehabilitation authority must take all reasonable steps to assist the person to find suitable civilian work.
