After driving trucks for 30 years, Dwayne Hayes injured his back but eventually found another job that involved running his own business and organising deliveries. But when he called his WorkCover insurance case manager, he said proposal was rejected because the insurer could not monitor his earnings if he ran his own business. That was in 2009 and Mr Hayes, 49, has not found another job since.
