Why do we have WCB?


WCB was created as a compromise between workers and employers. Workers receive immediate, stable and predictable help for workplace injuries in exchange for giving up the right to sue employers. WCB acts as a public insurance program that employers fund through premiums so they can’t be sued by injured employees and so that employees can get help when they are hurt on the job.
