Policy EN-01 - Arising Out Of and In The Course Of Employment

Effective Dates

July 1, 2018 and still in effect



General Information



Entitlement for compensation will be awarded when an injury arises out of and in the course of employment. This means that an injury results from the nature, condition(s) or obligation(s) of the employment and that the injury happens at a time, place and circumstance consistent with the employment.





This policy focuses on the established principles that have evolved to define "arising out of and in the course of employment" within the compensation system.
