What is the policy?
The Saskatchewan WCB has a policy that requires mandatory coverage for all active directors of corporations carried on payroll. An active Director who is reporting employment income on a T4 form is considered a worker by the WCB and is required to have WCB coverage.
The majority of you (72%) believe the WCB Act should be changed to allow directors to voluntary purchase WCB coverage. We agree with you that Saskatchewan should provide more flexibility, like Manitoba & Alberta, which allow directors of corporations to voluntarily purchase coverage, but do not require it.
What are we doing to stop WCB’s cash grab?
- We raised your concerns directly with the WCB CEO and Board members.
- We presented your views/concerns to the Workers’ Compensation Act Committee of Review (COR) on ways to improve WCB, which included changing the Act to allow Directors the flexibility to purchase optional WCB coverage.
