I'm hoping someone has more knowledge about this than me. 5 years ago my husband injured his back at work. Workcover investigated and was offered a compensation payment. At the time we were advised by a family friend to not take the payment as he would then be 'accepting' he had a permanent injury that could effect his ability to work
As time has passed he has been honest with employers about his injury history, and has never had trouble passing a medical.
Are there any ramifications to accepting the pay out?
