Staff (“adjudicators”) look at each claim to see if it qualifies, under the law,
as an injury covered by workers’ compensation.
To qualify, each of the following must be true:
- You have to be a worker under our Act. In very general terms, this means you were
working for an employer when the injury happened;
- You have to be working in an industry covered under our Act. There is a list of
industries not covered by us, which includes employees of the Federal government
and other federally regulated industries;
- You have to have an injury or illness;
- The injury or illness has to have been caused by your work duties, during work hours;
- The injury or illness must not have been deliberately self-inflicted.
If you were physically injured, identify what part of your body was injured.
Date of injury/illness:
If your injury/illness occurred over time, when did you first experience symptoms?
Provide the name of the person you initially reported your injury/illness to
When did you report the injury/illness?
What were your hours of work on the day of the injury/illness?
Returning to work in some capacity as soon as it is safe to do so is an important part of the recovery process.
