Employer fact sheet: Duty to cooperate

If you’re an employer in B.C. and one of your employees has an accepted WorkSafeBC claim for a work-related injury or illness, you and the worker may have a duty to cooperate. The duty to cooperate requires you both to work together, and with WorkSafeBC, on the worker’s timely and safe return to, or continuation of, work.

This fact sheet details your responsibilities as an employer relating to the duty to cooperate.
