Submission to the Eighteenth Session of the Universal Periodic Review

The United Nations is preparing to conduct a review of human rights issues in New Zealand. This process is called the Universal Periodic Review, and interested parties are given the opportunity to prepare submissions for the United Nation’s consideration.

Hazel Armstrong Law has completed a submission addressing discrimination against hearing loss claimants in the ACC legislation. Under the Act, claimants can only be covered for noise induced hearing loss if at least six percent of their total hearing loss was caused by occupational noise exposure. There is no threshold for cover for any other injury under the Accident Compensation Act.

You can find Hazel Armstrong Law’s submission to the Universal Periodic Review below. If you have any questions on this submission, or any other ACC problems, please contact us.
