The Government has recently announced a reduction in the ACC levies. Hazel Armstrong believes that rather than focusing on reducing ACC levies, the ACC should focus on ensuring that all ACC claimants get comprehensive and full treatment and rehabilitation. As spokesperson for ACC Futures, Hazel has given several interviews on the levies over the last few days. Hazel spoke to Radio Live’s Sean Plunket and Wallace Chapman, and on Radio New Zealand’s Morning Report. An article about Hazel’s Radio New Zealand can be found here.
Professor Bill Glass, from Massey University, has also spoken recently on why so many workers are getting injured or killed on the job.
