Every successful return to work starts with a great plan. New legislation came into effect in Alberta Sept. 1, 2018 meant that it’s even more important for employers and their workers to have a solid return-to-work plan in place when an injury happens.
Under this new legislation, offering an injured worker modified work is no longer an option for employers, it’s now their responsibility after a workplace accident.
This legislation applies to all claims with a date of accident on or after Sept. 1, 2018. For more detailed information on the legislative changes, please visit the 2018 Updates page of WCB’s website.
WCB offers a variety of webinars, workshops and seminars in Edmonton, Calgary and various locations throughout the province to help you take a look at your return-to-work programs and your costs. Find out more.
