WSIB Labour Market Re-Entry Program
Tuesday, August 17, 2010 at 4:04:50 PM

WSIB releases information on changes to their Labour Market Re-entry Program (LMR) – WSIB changes made to the administration of claimed workplaces injuries, in our opinion is not working – employers are not supported by N/C Managers and/or Directors - when workers are found to be misleading and dishonest about their medical condition – material changes are not being investigated and employers are left to carry out costly surveillance, and in many cases sometimes 62% are not considered evidence to reduce benefits and/or suspend benefits – we know more than 35% of all claimed workplace injuries are not true, they did not happen at the workplace – evidence has been provided to WSIB in the past three weeks of a worker doing modified for over 90 days at his full time job, and working in a part time job doing full time without modified work – This surveillance plus the written report has been sent to the Chairman of the Board over two weeks ago without a response. – These are reasons why the Employers of Ontario are paying some of the highest WSIB/WCB rates in Canada – in many workplace injuries the workers have been fully trained in occupational Health and Safety most receiving over 90% pass marks but still do not follow the rules causing injuries – no where in WSIB/WCB are there fines or penalties for workers who violate the law – employers must pay the cost. Let me have your view – e-mail The Workers Compensation Board is not getting better; it is getting worse – with a growing debt. Changes to the LMR Program, the only endorsements seen on your website are those of Union Members – when the present system has failed, how are you going to make the new system work with N/C Managers, Teams and Directors who always support workers reporting information of injury and never the employers witnessed information – no, it’s ok, the employer as always will pay without a proper WSIB Investigation.
