An In-Depth Guide to the Workers' Compensation System in B.C.

This much-anticipated publication provides, for the first time ever, a comprehensive overview of the law, policy and practice of the workers' compensation system in British Columbia. Until now, anyone looking for answers about B.C. workers' compensation issues had to piece together information from a number of resources, making it a challenge to understand the system and keep up with constant policy and practice changes.

This valuable one-stop resource explores important topics, including:

  • Governance structure of the Workers' Compensation Board (WorkSafeBC)
  • Significance of policies made by WorkSafeBC
  • Interrelationships of law and policy
  • Rules applied in making entitlement, assessment and prevention decisions
  • Procedures for seeking reviews and appeals of decisions

    Up-to-Date Coverage

    The publication will keep readers current by providing regularly updated references to statute law, WorkSafeBC policies and practices, as well as relevant Review Division, WCAT and court decisions.
