Bill 41: Amendments to the Workers Compensation Act
On October 31, 2022, BC Minister of Labour Harry Bains introduced amendments to the Workers Compensation Act which include:
- emphasising the legal responsibilities of employers to help workers return to work;
- increasing the maximum compensation amount for non-traumatic hearing loss; and
- allowing for independent health professionals in external appeals.
What does this mean for employers and workers? How will these amendments affect the industry? How could this affect return-to-work plans for injured workers?
Join us for this webinar featuring Christopher Drinovz and Alejandra Henao from KSW Lawyers to learn how these amendments could impact employers and workers. Get insight into what additional amendments they anticipate could be next.
