On January 1, 2018, the WSIB Policy on Chronic Mental Stress came into effect, setting out how and when a worker may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits for chronic mental stress. The policy provides that workers would be entitled to benefits if their chronic mental stress was caused by a substantial work-related stressor arising out of and in the course of their employment.

In this seminar, we will discuss the new policy and what it means for employers with respect to workers’ compensation implications and obligations.

Specific topics include:

  • The difference between chronic mental stress and traumatic mental stress
  • Tips for employer investigations
  • Employer reporting obligations to the WSIB
  • Employer obligations with respect to return to work
