Policy update

Published on: October 18, 2017

Policies — Workers Compensation Act

The application statement of Policy Item D12-196-6 was revised to clarify that the July 4, 2017 amendments do not apply to violations occurring before March 1, 2016 which have resulted in administrative penalties. Violations occurring before March 1, 2016 will still be considered as part of an employer's compliance history for the purposes of determining a repeat penalty amount.
