The country seems to operate between Xmas and New Year when they’re all on leave.
In any case, you have extrapolated my original criticisms of the APS into a generalization that I want the whole of the APS disbanded.
Nice try though !!!
PUBLIC servants have pocketed compensation for injuries suffered falling off segways, walking a work dog, and during a drumbeat workshop.
WorkSafe was inundated with almost 1500 claims from public servants, including teachers and hospital staff, in 2016-17. A dossier obtained by the Herald Sun shows the claims included:
$23,000 for tennis elbow caused by constantly locking and unlocking doors.
$22,412 for repetitive strain injury from minuting meetings.
$5000 for a fall from a segway during a team bonding exercise — one of two segway falls.
$1917 for pain after a student “deliberately popped plastic lunch bag next to my ear”.
$2890 for “strain” after an awkward flight home from a school camp to China.
$3544 for anxiety caused by having to take annual leave at short notice.
Other bizarre claims were for a lower back injury during a drumbeat workshop and a hernia caused by a work dog pulling away as the employee was scooping up its excrement.
