Most employers are required by law to have worker's compensation protection for their workers if they're operating in a compulsory industry. Find out who you have to cover, if you're in an exempt industry and how to sign up for an account.
When you're an employer, business owner, director of a corporation or in a partnership, personal coverage may be available to you. This provides you the benefits and services available through workers' compensation insurance.
Coverage for contractors and subcontractors
If you hire a contractor or subcontractor who doesn't have their own WCB coverage, they would be covered under your account in most cases. If an injury happens, it could impact your premiums. It's important to know your responsibilities.
Coverage in special circumstances
This section provides you with coverage information about a variety of different circumstances.
