Proposed surveillance policy
In January 2018, WorkSafeBC’s Board of Directors commissioned an external compensation policy review. The resulting report entitled Restoring the Balance: A Worker-Centred Approach to Workers’ Compensation Policy was published April 2018 and contains a number of recommendations. Recommendation #41 is for WorkSafeBC to consider implementing a policy for the appropriate use of video surveillance.
The Policy, Regulation and Research Division is releasing a discussion paper with options on proposed policy regarding the use of surveillance for claims adjudication to stakeholders for comment. Proposed deletions of policy wording are identified with a
strikethrough and additions are identified in bold.
There are a number of ways for stakeholders to provide feedback on the options and draft policy amendments.
