Work-Related COVID-19 Claim Costs Will Now Impact WSIB Premium of Individual Schedule 1 Employers
Ontario’s Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) recently announced a change to how it will cost COVID-19 related claims. Effective July 1, 2022, the cost of a COVID-19 related claim which arose on or after July 1, 2022 will be allocated to the individual Schedule 1 employer. Prior to this change, the WSIB did not allocate the costs of a COVID-19 claim to the individual employer, but instead distributed those costs across all employers in Schedule 1.
