As a human resource professional often a WCB claim is something you may not be actively involved in. If you are, it’s a role that is added to what is usually already a full plate of duties.
The trouble with workers compensation claims is often understanding the system. HR managers are very considerate of how an injured worker is managed while they recover from a workplace injury.
However, managing an injured worker with a WCB claim is a little different then helping them through a workplace issue. This is because the WCB system is rarely discussed in enough detail. It’s more than filling out a few documents and sending them in.
Having a basic knowledge of WCB could help you avoid additional costs or injuries added to the claim.
In rare cases, a worker may be facing termination while on a WCB claim.
Depending on the situation this may or may not have an impact on WCB premiums. However, the health and safety manager may be looking to you to make sure labour laws are being followed.
As part of an HR professional’s education they are taught about the Duty to Accommodate. However, not everyone in health and safety is aware of this.
Our WCB training for Health and Safety managers helps you work with your team and company to explain what the duty to accommodate is and how to avoid issues and penalties by proving undue hardship.
This is a key element of WCB claims management and needs to be understood by your organization. As an employer, it’s your responsibility to prove undue hardship when you’re unable to accommodate a worker.
Learn How to Best Use Short Term and Long Term Disability Claims
A great human resource manager will also know how to use other resources that an injured worker with a WCB claim may be able to utilize during their recovery. This includes how and when is best to utilize short-term (STD) / long-term (LTD) disability claims.
STD claims and LTD claims are usually through a third party insurance and deal with non-work related injuries. When a worker reports what they believe is a WCB claim and are denied by workers compensation. The human resource manager could assist in getting that worker a short-term disability claim.
These are the kinds of things we cover in our WCB training for Human Resource Managers.
