March 31: Comments Sought on Changes to Long-Term Average Earnings Policy
WorkSafeBC’s Board approved the release of a discussion paper on long-term average earnings policy in the Rehabilitation Services & Claims Manual Volume II. WorkSafeBC administers the claims of federal employees covered by the Government Employees Compensation Act (GECA). Current policy provides that long-term average earnings are not calculated for GECA workers who are maintained on full salary by their employer while injured. For consideration is whether this policy direction should be revised. Stakeholders may provide feedback until 4:30 p.m. on June 12, 2015.
