An Employer’s Guide to WorkSafeBC
Understanding an employer’s obligations under the Workers Compensation Act has never been more important. Recently, B.C.’s workers compensation system has faced many critical reviews and many changes have been made to the Workers Compensation Act, the OHS regulations and the Board’s policies. In this 2-hour workshop, we will help you understand the key changes for employers with respect to claims, prevention obligations, liability and enforcement. We will cover the rising impact of mental disorder claims, an employer’s continuing obligations to prevent bullying and harassment in the context of prohibited action complaints, the impact of COVID-19, and other key developments from an employer’s perspective.
This workshop will be interactive and there will be opportunities throughout for participants to ask questions.
Monitoring and managing employees’ attendance can be a time consuming task, seemingly fraught with legal risk. In this webinar, we will provide you with an overview of attendance related issues, including policy implementation, accommodation of disability-related absences, and understanding when the employment relationship can be terminated as a result of poor attendance. We will also discuss how attendance management policies may need to be revised in light of the current public health crisis.
