More than a thousand people on workers compensation in South Australia will be kicked off under laws that were introduced last year.

Claimants with a debilitation of less than 30 per cent are covered for a maximum of two years, despite some still forking out for daily painkillers and possibly facing further surgeries down the track that are related to their injury.

Greens and Independent Members of the South Australian Legislative Council have today moved to establish a parliamentary enquiry into the laws, to give those effected by the changes a chance to speak up for themselves.
