Our frontline workers are heroes. They are taking care of our communities during this crisis, and we need to make sure we take care of them.
Currently, COVID-19 related WSIB claims are adjudicated on a case-by-case basis. Frontline workers who are sick must prove that their contraction of COVID-19 was work-related.
This is unacceptable.
Frontline workers who have contracted COVID-19 while serving the people of Ontario should not be burdened with excessive stress and delays in receiving the benefits they need.
Bill 191 would add a presumption that COVID-19 is an occupational disease for essential workers who test positive.
