Ontario Workplace Safety and Insurance Act: Quick Reference, 2022 Edition, Hardbound book

Availability: In Stock

Ontario’s Workplace Safety and Insurance Act (WSIA) governs the administration of the province’s workplace insurance regime, including revenue generation through fees and levies on registered firms and claims administration for injured workers. The Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) is perhaps second only to the federal income tax administration in terms of its impact on individual businesses and organizations. Understanding the WSIB employer requirements is vital to cost control and effective employee management. This Quick Reference outlines key employer requirements, including registration, fees and levies, accident reporting and claims administration and return to work/accommodation requirements. This portable, concise guide also contains the full text of the Act and Regulations and a helpful index to the full contents of the guide for your convenience.

New in the 2022 Edition:

  • Key changes made as a result of the deletion of a number of Work Reintegration Policies to make room for the implementation of the revised Return to Work policy suite within the Operational Policy Manual.
  • Updates to reflect revisions to the Operational Policy Manual document to account for the implementation of the new WSIB Rate Framework.
  • A revised approach to premium rate setting for Schedule 2 organizations opting to transfer to Schedule 1. The WSIB’s new approach provides that these employers should be assigned a premium rate based on their Schedule 2 experience.
  • Changes to Schedule 1 of Ontario Regulation 175/98, which splits current subclass G1 into subclass G1 and subclass G6. Revisions have been made to reflect the updated classification structure and its additional classes, raising the number of classes from 34 to 35.
  • Two new Employer Classification Manual NAICS that were created: NAICS 007060, Non-Exempt Partners and Executive Officers in Construction; and NAICS 001191, Supply of Labour to subclass G6.
