Workers’ Compensation (WHSCC Scam)
Feb. 4: Some NL employers have been approached by a U.S. firm that may be leaving the impression that it’s acting on behalf of the WHSCC to settle companies’ workers’ comp debts. Don’t believe it, says the government. WHSCC handles all matters of outstanding debt through its Assessment Services Department and doesn’t use the services of any third party collection or debt settlement agencies. Employers are encouraged to verify the identity of any debt collectors and to clarify whether or not they’re speaking directly to the WHSCC.
