Workers' Compensation

Faculty, Employees, Students

WORKERS' COMPENSATION is a type of insurance which covers any accident that arises out of, or occurs in the course of employment. All Workers' Compensation claims must be reported to the WCB, by Employee Wellness within 72 hours of the accident (WCB Section 28(2)). If you require a "Workers" report for submission to WCB, please see the following link: http://www.wcb.ab.ca/workers/online_report.asp
