The Department of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour, in collaboration with WorkSafeNB, is sponsoring a multi-stage legislative review of New Brunswick’s workers’ compensation.
The objective of the review is:
- to ensure that the New Brunswick workers’ compensation system appropriately addresses the needs and realities of current and future workplaces;
- to strike the right balance between adequate compensation for injured workers and employers’ financial interests; and
- to modernize the act with plain language to ensure that those impacted by its legislation are able to fully understand its implications and what it means to them.
For more information on the review see the Government of New Brunswick’s website at: Legislative Review of Workers’ Compensation.
