There’s more to being an HSUWA member than employment protection and fighting for your rights at work.
When you join the HSUWA, you get access to a wide range of benefits and discounts inside and outside the workplace, including:
Journey Cover protects you from loss of pay if you are injured in an accident going to or from work. Journey Cover pays you up to 85% of your income while you are off work, and if you choose to use your own sick leave, Journey Cover pays you on top of your sick leave pay. Read more.
The HSUWA professional indemnity insurance covers all members for up to $20 million.
Indemnity insurance protects you from claims of breaching your professional duty because of negligent act, error or omission relating to your work. Your employer's indemnity insurance arrangements usually cover you, but it does not cover you for the legal costs and expenses that may be incurred with any disciplinary matters. Read more.
Bereavement Benefit Fund
Financial stress often adds to the physical and mental trauma people can experience when they are hit with a loved one's death in the family. Sometimes, bank accounts can be frozen, and families are forced to scrape through for several weeks until money becomes available in those accounts. The HSUWA aims to alleviate any immediate financial difficulties by providing a Bereavement Benefit Fund of $5,000 for our members. Read more.
