ARE KIDS WHO PARTICIPATE IN TAKE OUR KIDS TO WORK DAY COVERED BY WORKERS COMPENSATION?

Yes.

Participants in the Take our Kids to Work (TOKW) day are considered employees of the Province of Manitoba, and coverage is extended to all kids who are participating. TOKW students are entitled to workers compensation should any work related injury occur during the program.

 

ARE EMPLOYERS PROTECTED WHO HAVE KIDS ATTENDING TAKE OUR KIDS TO WORK DAY?

Yes, if the employer has WCB coverage.

TOKW participants are considered employees of the Province of Manitoba, and therefore employers with WCB coverage are protected from lawsuit should any work related injuries be sustained on this day. Employers who do not have WCB coverage are not immune from a lawsuit.

We look forward to participating in this year's TOKW program and know the students and businesses will have added peace of mind knowing they have coverage for this event.
