Policy Purpose

The Workers Compensation Act (the Act) allows the Workers Compensation Board (WCB) to adjust average earnings and wage-loss benefits from time to time when the WCB is satisfied that a worker’s average earnings before the accident do not fairly represent his or her earning capacity.  The WCB adjusts the probable earning capacity for apprentices and youthful workers.
