Covid-19 Now Covered Under WorkSafe BC’s “Presumption” Schedule:

Effective August 20, 2020, all claims made by BC workers for Covid-19 will be covered under WorkSafe BC’s presumptive diseases list. That means that all claims advanced by workers in BC for Covid-19 will be presumed to have occurred from the workplace unless otherwise proven. If an employer believes that the claim was not contracted in the workplace, the onus will be squarely on the employer to prove otherwise.

Case Management Canada is asking our BC clients to notify us of all Covid-19 claims being made by their employees so that we may review and make submissions as necessary/appropriate.
