May 4: Review of Workers’ Comp System Announced


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.
