Commonwealth Bank of Australia v Reeve [2012] FCAFC 21

The decision concerned the meaning of s 5A of the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 1988 (Cth) (“the SRC Act”), namely the exception provides that an “injury”:

“…does not include a disease, injury or aggravation suffered as a result of reasonable administrative action taken in a reasonable manner in respect of the employee’s employment.”

By contrast I refer you to s.32(5) of the Workers’ Compensation and Rehabilitation Act 2003 (Qld) (“WCRA”) and the exclusion of “reasonable management action”.
