Ontario Workplace Safety and Insurance Act: Quick Reference - 2021 Edition

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.

The 2021 Edition features the following additions, as well as highlights of statutory or jurisprudential developments:

  • Overview of the Board’s Policy Agenda for 2021
  • Overview of the Board’s New Rate Framework, which came into effect on January 1, 2020 and the effects that it has on employer classification under the Act
  • Overview of the Board’s policy revisions related to cannabis for medical purposes
