May 1: Workers’ Comp Coverage Expanded to Coaches & Instructors


The government amended the Workers’ Compensation Act Exclusion Regulations to include mandatory WCB coverage for amateur coaches and instructors, and substitute teachers. As of March 6, 2014, such employees now have access to workers’ comp benefits and services if they’re injured on the job. As a result, impacted employers must revise their 2014 payroll estimate to include salaries for these employees on their payroll from March 6, 2014 to the end of the year.
