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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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, its ok, the employer as always will pay without a proper WSIB Investigation.
