March 25: New Psychological Injury Policy Approved
The WCB Board of Directors approved a new psychological injury policy. After considering input from stakeholders, the Board made a number of changes to the draft policy. The new program policy can be found in Appendix B of Psychological Injuries: Final Program Policy Decision and Supporting Rationale. The new policy doesn’t change how psychological injury claims are adjudicated but puts current practice into policy to ensure clear and consistent handling of such claims.
