Policy Purpose

Section 109.5(1) of the Worker's Compensation Act (effective January 1, 1992) stipulates that the WCB may delegate certain powers to agents or local representatives. This policy will deal with this section as it pertains to the delegation of the function of adjudication being performed by an employer for its own employees. The Worker's Compensation Board will consider applications from employers wishing to perform this function. The criteria that the Worker's Compensation Board will consider when evaluating applications from employers to perform the function of adjudication can generally be divided into the areas of capacity to perform the function; track record in the areas of compensation, safety, and labour relations; and commitment to the process and to the requirements of the Worker's Compensation Board.
