Independent contractor deemed a worker

The NSW Court of Appeal dismissed a claim for damages by an independent contractor who was deemed a worker under the workers compensation legislation. It rejected an argument by the injured contractor that the restricted work injury damages regime and procedural requirements imposed by the workers compensation legislation did not apply. (Ebb v Fast Fix Steel Fixing Pty Limited [2007] NSWCA 236)
