For employees

We're here to help. We fight for the benefits the worker is entitled to. This includes wage-loss benefits, medical coverage and support to help people get back to work after a work-related injury or illness. The WSIB is funded by premiums paid by Ontario businesses. They provide no-fault collective liability insurance and access to industry-specific health and safety information.

If you have been injured at work, or developed a medical condition from work, there is some basic information you need to know; You need to immediately report the incident to your employer and the WSIB, as well as to get medical treatment as soon as possible. There are strict time limits for filing a claim with the WSIB and the longer you delay, the more likely you will be denied WSIB benefits.

Being injured on the job or dealing with a medical condition that interferes with work can be challenging. If your situation leads to a loss of income, it is important to understand your rights and how you should be compensated.

We have experience assisting and protecting the rights of our clients Ontario with WSIB claims and WSIAT claims. The WSIB system can be complex and intimidating for injured workers and their families. We know what benefits are available to you, including income benefits, and how to make the system work best for our clients.

For employers

Employers in Ontario must follow Occupational Health and Safety laws to protect their workers. Unfortunately, accidents will always occur at which point strict deadlines begin. We ensure your business is meeting current advice on how to proceed in any particular situation when dealing with an injured worker or the WSIB and/or WSIAT.

Health and safety at the workplace are more crucial than ever as we work through the global pandemic. You must ensure the health and safety of your remote workers. Employers have responsibilities under the WSIB. In addition to registering within the first 10 days of hiring the first employee, employers must report workplace incidents to the WSIB within three (3) days of when the incident causes a worker to lose time from work, earn less than their regular day's pay and/or received healthcare treatment

There is only one exception to the above-mentioned deadline. Employers have seven days to report an incident only when the worker needs nothing beyond first aid and receives modified work at full pay. If the worker requires more than seven consecutive days, the employer is obligated to report the injury to the WSIB.

Employers must keep records of the incident, with concise details of matter that arises, and the recovery time of the worker. Furthermore, employers must report any significant changes that affects the employer's commitments to the WSIB within 10 days.
