New return-to-work requirements for employers and workers starting January 1, 2024
As part of Bill 41, the provincial government has made amendments to the Workers Compensation Act that affect return to work.
Starting January 1, 2024, employers and workers will have a legal duty to cooperate with each other and with WorkSafeBC in a worker’s timely and safe return to work following an injury, and certain employers will have an obligation to return injured workers to work in specific circumstances.
For more information on Bill 41, see:
