Workplace Safety and Insurance Board: WSIB

Workplace Safety and Insurance Board

Workplace Safety and Insurance Board insurance is not compulsory to those considered executive officers by WSIB although an executive member can still apply by requesting to be considered as a worker by WSIB. Those subject to WSIB insurance fee include dispatchers, Safety Compliance Officers, Operation managers, drivers and office staff. Several situations present themselves; when an office staff enters into a contract with a carrier as a consultant so that the carrier excludes this payments on the payroll or when a driver incorporate a business and then the company lease the truck again, the payments are excluded in the payroll. In both cases file 1149A must be filed and the likelihood of being exempted from the premiums are low.
