The ACCS (Accident Compensation Conciliation Service) is a statutory authority, established under the Accident Compensation Act 1985. The ACCS is an independent service that uses the principles of alternative dispute resolution to resolve workers compensation disputes in Victoria.
Conciliation is an alternative dispute resolution process that can help you avoid having to go to court. Conciliation is a key part of the Victorian
Workers Compensation Scheme and is designed to help resolve disputes by getting all the people involved - workers, employers and WorkCover agents or self-insurers - in an informal, non-adversarial setting to achieve an agreement that is fair.
The ACCS is a free service.
