Dunedin barrister Warren Forster has questioned the independence of the ACC review process, saying the private sector company to which ACC has contracted out the review work remains under undue influence from ACC in its review decisions.

Stuff reports Forster has obtained the contract between ACC and Fairway Resolution Services which show ACC gives feedback on any decision Fairway makes in favour of the claimant - something which Forster says compromises the supposed independence of the dispute resolution service.
