Summary

Part of a package of three bills in relation to the Seacare scheme, the bill imposes a seafarers insurance levy (to support a safety net fund where an employer cannot meet its workers’ compensation obligations) and a seafarers cost recovery levy (to enable the recovery of the costs of the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Commission, Comcare and the Australian Maritime Safety Authority in performing their respective regulatory functions) on seafarer berths.
