Personal Injury Commission (NSW): General Members and Principal Members
The Personal Injury Commission (PIC) will be established in NSW on 1 March 2021. The PIC is a single, independent tribunal for injured people claiming against the compulsory third party (CTP) and workers compensation insurance schemes. The PIC will replace the existing Workers Compensation Commission and SIRA’s Dispute Resolution Services that currently manage workers compensation and motor vehicle disputes respectively.

Full-time General Members and Principal Members are based in Sydney. Sessional General Members may be based in Sydney or regional locations. Some travel may be required.

Full-time General Members and Principal Members receive an attractive salary. Sessional General Members are remunerated under a fee schedule. Appointments may be made for terms up to five years, with eligibility for reappointment.
