Coverage for Directors

Coverage for Directors

Effective Dates

December 31, 2014 and still in effect

Policy Code

EA-06

General Information

A director of an incorporated company is considered a worker under the Workers’ Compensation Act (the Act). Employers must pay assessments for directors, and those directors are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits if they sustain a work-related injury.

However, not all directors perform active work and not all directors’ income is considered "earnings" under the Act.  YWCHSB can deem some directortors not to be workers.

Purpose

This policy provides direction on:

  • determining when a director is working and non-working;
  • assessing employers who have directors; and
  • verifying directors’ earnings if they have work-related injuries and submit claims for compensation.
