Compensation table for hearing loss

 

Since the Consumer price Index (CPI) between the December 1996 and December 1997 quarters decreased, the levels of compensation for 1997/98 and 1998/99 injuries remain the same.

Note: Impairment entitlements are indexed annually by CPI. Total loss entitlements are indexed annually by average weekly earnings (AWE).
