v35#13 PRESUMPTIVE LEGISLATION FOR PTSI PASSED BY PARLIAMENTIn this edition - As you would know, after many years of campaigning, in September 2015, the Palaszczuk Government passed amendments to Queensland’s workers’ compensation laws that introduced presumptive legislation for Firefighters who are diagnosed with one of 12 cancers.
