Policy Purpose

Under workers compensation, employers pay assessments to the Workers Compensation Board (WCB) for coverage for workplace injuries and illnesses. The sound financial management of the system depends on employers paying assessments in a timely manner. The Act contains provisions for the WCB to collect assessments from employers who do not pay.

The purpose of this policy is to describe the collections procedures for assessments in arrears or default.
