Mandatory Vs Optional Coverage

Workplace safety is so important ... and many of us know how a work-related injury or illness can affect the lives of workers and their families, a company’s bottom line, and staff morale.  This is why employers in most industries are required to cover their workers.  However, employers who are not required to cover their workers may decide to provide coverage on an optional basis.

The WCB offers a way to provide employers and workers in industries that are not required to have coverage the peace of mind that comes from knowing there is coverage in place when and if it's needed.
