Clear Path consultant Michelle Strassburger recently achieved significant WSIB cost savings for a client facing an unusual situation: an employee that had a workplace accident in 2011 had since died of natural causes (not related to the accident).
Understand the NEER system
It is essential that all business owners, managers and HR professionals understand that the WSIB's NEER program and how various decisions can impact the company's claim costs. We recommend attending one of Clear Path's popular Intro to the WSIB's NEER Program workshop, which you can learn more about here.
Review cost statements for inaccuracies and anomalies
Reviewing both your monthly cost statement and quarterly NEER statement for any inaccuracies is important. The WSIB will NOT identify these for you, as demonstrated in the vignette above. It is important to remember that WSIB policy dictates that should the employer identify any mistakes, they must provide the details to the WSIB as new information and request any costs to be removed or recalculated.
Understand when things have become too complicated
Manaing your company's Worker’s Compensation is a job in itself and many employers have added this stressful responsibility to already busy HR professionals. If you do not have the time or experience to accurately manage WSIB claims, consider outsourcing to the experts! Clear Path Employer Services provides experienced claim management and NEER Experience Rating advice to help employers reduce their disability claim costs.
Contact one of our consultants to request a complimentary NEER review.
We'd love to connect with you!
