This course introduces the student to worker compensation laws and the Workplace Safety Insurance Board (WSIB). The WSIB will be reviewed from its inception in Canada to its current-day operations. The course will provide an overview of the changes that have been made in the last decade and a critical look at what changes the WSIB must still make. Concepts such as unfunded liability, case management, early return to work, occupational diseases and the Experience Rating System will be explored. The annual fees charged by the WSIB to the employer will be calculated and filling out the appropriate WSIB forms that must be submitted will be explored.
