Leaked emails between WorkSafe insurance agents and managers have revealed how they would celebrate when payments to injured people were cut off. 

Staff emails were revealed as part of the investigation into the Victoria's workers compensation scheme. 

The report showed how staff called the outcomes of claims as 'wins' and 'loses' and even joked about swindling part of a person's compensation into an 'offshore Cayman Island account'.

Victorian Ombudsman Deborah Glass found the complicated set of financial rewards and penalties was encouraging agents to get people off WorkCover.

She slammed the scheme as 'downright immoral and unethical' after finding injured workers were being left without compensation as agents were making unreasonable decisions, the ABC reported.
