Directors are not protected by WorkCover for workplace accidents

Direct from the WorkCover Qld website:

The Workers’ Compensation and Rehabilitation Act 2003 (the Act) states that employers must insure their workers with WorkCover Queensland under an Accident Insurance Policy. However, directors, partners of a partnership, sole traders and trustees are excluded from coverage as they are not considered workers.
