Accident Compensation Corporation is taking over existing and future workplace injury claims from collapsed construction company Mainzeal Property and Construction.

ACC said today it had terminated its accredited employer contract with Mainzeal following the appointment of receivers. 

Mainzeal was a self insurer, which meant it was responsible for providing support for workers injured on the job, including weekly compensation where required.

Any Mainzeal employees with questions or concerns about an at work injury claim may contact ACC directly on 0800 101 996.

Yesterday, Mainzeal's receivers made 200 of Mainzeal's 400 employees redundant and that included about 60 in Christchurch.

The Christchurch employees losing their jobs were carpenters, project and site managers, quantity surveyors and administration staff. 

Many of the carpenters have been snapped up by other Christchurch construction companies.
