BOD Decision -2010/05/19-04 – Room and Board
At the May 19, 2010 meeting, the Board of Directors approved amendments to policy item #68.22, Room and Board, in the Rehabilitation Services & Claims Manual, Volume II.
The changes to the Room and Board policy provide that:
- Where a worker is provided with room and board as part of his or her overall remuneration, the value of that room and board would be included in the calculation of average earnings regardless of whether or not the worker continues to receive it during the claim; and
- As a consequential amendment, a statement providing that WorkSafeBC would not reimburse the employer when the employer continues to pay the worker 25% or less of the pre-injury wages during the course of the claim has been deleted from policy item #34.40, Pay Employer Claims.
