The government announced a review of the workers’ comp system in New Brunswick. The specific actions include:
- Establishing a task force of employer and worker representatives and chaired by a neutral party from out-of-province
- Having the auditor general conduct an independent value-for-money audit of WorkSafeNB to ensure it’s administering programs in the most efficient manner possible
- Formally requesting the WorkSafeNB board to ensure their rates reflect the fact that reports are pending from the task force and the auditor general.
