A medical certificate or work capacity certificate (WCC) is a document completed by a medical practitioner after assessing and treating an injured worker.
The WCC contains helpful information for the injured worker, their employer and their case manager, including the injury diagnosis, recommended treatment, work restrictions, and review timeframe. If you are injured at work, you will need a WCC to lodge a workers compensation claim.
A copy of the WCC should be provided by you to your employer and your case manager.
