Employers of Apprentices

If your business is in a mandatory industry and you have an apprenticeship agreement, your apprentices are included in your workers compensation coverage.

Apprentices are included in your coverage whether they are participating in on-the-job training or in-school technical training. In either case, you are considered the employer of record and all costs associated with a claim are applied to your firm’s experience.

Incident Reporting

When an employee is injured, the last thing on anyone's mind is paperwork. No one wants to wait and watch the mail for forms that will have to be filled out and sent back in order to get people the compensation they need. But somebody has to provide an incident report...and the sooner that report gets to the WCB, the sooner it can be processed and the sooner we can get an injured worker back to health and work.

So the WCB is making incident reporting easier...by moving it online.

Xcalibur Group

The WCB requested specific business records from the firm as part of an investigation or audit of the firm's compliance with the Act. The firm failed to provide these records and was subsequently served with an order to produce those records. The employer failed to comply with the order. As a result, the firm is no longer in good standing with the WCB and cannot obtain a clearance certificate until the order is satisfied.

Elder, Ben

The worker failed to notify to the Workers Compensation Board of Manitoba that they had returned to work on Friday, May 17, 2019 while in receipt of wage loss benefits contrary to s. 19(4) of The Workers Compensation Act.
