Work Insurance.

We know your career is more than a pay packet, but our work insurance gives you financial peace of mind.

Professionals Australia operates as your insurance for work, with fully qualified lawyers on hand to give you workplace advice and support and to act on your behalf as needed. We also represent thousands of members in workplace bargaining and cover you for accidents on your way to and from employment with journey insurance.

  • Our qualified lawyers offer workplace advice, support and representation.
  • We undertake workplace bargaining to protect and advance your salary and conditions.
  • Journey insurance as you travel to and from work. With most workers compensation schemes no longer covering members who suffer injuries while in transit between home and work, our Journey Insurance has you covered.

  • I’ve always been extremely satisfied with any encounter with staff. Enquirers by phone or email always responded to promptly or I have been advised of estimated time of response if they have anticipated a delay. Face to face encounters during staff visits to workplaces have always been positive. Your staff are always professional and don’t make promises they can’t deliver, which is important to me.

  • The benefit of having an organisation boasting skills, expertise, posture and credibility to advocate, defend, support and assist members in the workplace. I have rarely drawn on this over the past many years as a member, but when I have needed it, the peace of mind that comes from having someone to help fight your battles has been great!

  • While I have not needed advice often, it has been great to have it available when I have – and know that I have somewhere to turn to when looking for an external opinion on a workplace issue. I have also found the resources produced by… Professionals Australia that I have accessed to be high quality and useful when thinking about / managing my career.

    Professionals Australia Member
  • I spoke to a Professionals Australia representative a couple of years ago about a Resume review and he provided me with very timely, comprehensive advice about my CV. He annotated the CV I had submitted with comments and ran me those comments over the phone, which I found extremely helpful, before graduating from university.

    Professionals Australia Member
  • The experience I had with direct contact with Professionals Australia was excellent. Easy to contact and returned calls in timely manner.

  • At the time I needed support, (you were) the only organisation I was a member of, that actually did anything.

    Professionals Australia Member
  • My experiences with… industrial staff have been excellent – timely, supportive, seem genuinely concerned. Also experienced and expert – it’s nice not to be represented by a novice.
