As of January 1st, 2018, employees with work-related chronic or traumatic mental stress may be eligible for benefits from the WSIB under its new chronic mental stress (CMS) policy. This expanded entitlement for mental stress under the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act means all employers, specifically those with stressful workplaces, will need to take additional steps to reduce workplace stress — including harassment, bullying and workload issues — and minimize the existence of substantial workplace stressors in order to limit costly, complicated stress-related lost time claims.
- Explore how the WSIB has been interpreting and applying the new provisions under the CMS policy
- Find out whether a failure to investigate claims of harassment, discrimination and violence in the workplace exposes employers to increased claims for chronic mental stress
- Learn how to develop criteria for an acceptable CMS investigation process to prevent WSIB claims
- Examine what preventative measures you can take to prevent chronic mental stress in the workplace
