Policy Purpose

The Workers Compensation Board (WCB) pays compensation while a worker is totally or partially disabled (for accidents before January 1, 1992) or has a loss of earning capacity (for accidents after December 31, 1991) as a result of the accident.

This policy describes when and how the WCB will pay compensation for statutory holidays that fall within or after the period of disability or loss of earning capacity.
