May 1: Deadline for Feedback on Workers’ Comp Coverage for PTSD
The WCB is seeking feedback on workers’ comp coverage for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Specifically, it wants to know whether The Workers Compensation Act should be amended to provide presumptive coverage for PTSD, including whether a presumption would improve timely access to benefits and consistent adjudication and, if so, what form such a presumption would take. See the Consultation Paper for details. May 1 is the deadline for comments.
