The WSIB is accepting comments on its proposed chronic mental stress policy. The consultation dealing with chronic mental stress follows the government’s tabling of legislation as part of its 2017 budget that would, if passed, expand the entitlement for injured workers by allowing compensation for work-related chronic mental stress. Anyone wishing to submit comments should visit the Work-Related Chronic Mental Stress Policy Consultation web page. Comments are open until July 7, 2017.
