July 2016: We launched an aggressive campaign Urging Manitoba WCB to stop overcharging employers!
Since the full cost of WCB is covered by Manitoba employers, the affordability of workers’ compensation is a major business issue and the top priority of CFIB members (see Figure 1). The second priority of members is claims management. In fact, workers’ compensation systems are so complex, Manitoba business owners point to WCB and Workplace Safety & Health requirements as the second most burdensome area of provincial regulations.
As a result, CFIB provided important survey results on the following important issues: financial accountability; costs of premiums; claims management; the appeals process; rate setting and assessments; classification and assessment; and, customer service.
CFIB is committed to ensuring a compensation system that is responsive to injured workers and accountable to employers.
