Restore the Workers' Rights Party is a minor Australian political party.
The aim of the party is to represent injured workers. It lists it objective as "Restoration of injured persons to fair and just compensation for their injuries and disabilities, and failing agreement on quantum of / and or right compensation, the full restoration and maintenance of independent and unfettered judicial determination of those entitlements." The party says once this objective is met it would vote in accordance with the direction of the Leader of the Australian Labor Party leading to claims the party is a 'Labor front'.
