No workers comp for UNSW staffer’s “terrible and shocking experience”

In 2018  UNSW employee Mohammed Kamer Nilar Nizamdeen was charged with planning a terror attack and held in custody for a month but the evidence against him was fabricated by another university worker

Mr Nizandeem claimed workers compensation from the university which responded his psychological injury had, “no connection or relationship to his employment.”

The NSW Personal Injuries Commission has found for UNSW, that while Mr Nizandeem’s experience was “terrible and shocking” the psychological injury he sustained did not arise “out of or in the course of his employment with his employer,” which the state’s Workers Compensation Act requires.
