Employer Audits

Audits help us ensure employers are assessed fairly and equitably and that they are meeting the requirements of The Workers Compensation Act, WCB policies and procedures.

We audit employers to ensure two things: that their assessable payroll has been reported correctly and that their classification best reflects their business activities. The classification assigned to a business impacts the assessment rate they pay. Financial audits or classification investigations, or both, can be part of the audit.

Employers are selected for audits for one of the following reasons:

  • they are part of an industry being reviewed,
  • the business no longer employs workers and has asked for a refund,
  • the business is part of a random sample.
