Compensation Practice Directive: #C12-1 — Disclosure of Personal Information
On June 11, 1996, the Panel of Administrators approved amendments to the Rehabilitation Services and Claims Manual (“RSCM”) to implement recommendations by the Information and Privacy Commissioner concerning the Board’s practices with respect to disclosure of personal information about workers to employers. The amendments became effective July 1, 1996.
As well, on March 3, 2003, the Workers Compensation Act (the “Act”) was amended by Bill 63, the Workers Compensation Amendment Act (No.2), 2002. As a result, the Board of Directors approved amendments to the RSCM and this practice directive was amended on March 3, 2003.
