WSIB Benefit Increase Effective January 1, 2008
Wednesday, January 2, 2008 at 2:46:34 PM

The Ontario’s Government announces, effective January 1, 2008, the second of these weekly WSIB benefit increases to take effect, increasing the WSIB benefits from 87.5% to 90.0%, with a further weekly WSIB increase in benefits of 2.5% in 2009, setting a new all time high of 92.5% for workplace injured workers benefits. This on top of the $1,500.00 dollar increase in earning ceiling from $71,100.00 to $73,300.00 for every worker who is covered by WSIB benefits. These new benefit increases apply to workers who are permanently, partially disabled. In other words, all workers who are off work for a claimed workplace injury will receive the higher benefits, in both 2008 and 2009. Yet when claims adjudicators are shown surveillance video with the injured worker doing what he/she claims he/she cannot do, “claims adjudicator” the worker is having a good day. Does WSIB understand that more than 22% of all claims are abuse of the Worker Compensation Boards System?

Yes, the McGuinty Government only inherited a system that was in serious jeopardy, because the WSIB was paying claims that should never have been allowed in the first place. It was and is the WSIB Board that has created the deficit.

When are deserving employers going to get the same help – before employers leave Ontario and/or have gone out of business?
