Manitoba employers obliged to re-employ injured workers

Winnipeg — As a result of recent changes to Manitoba’s Workers Compensation Act, employers now have to develop and expand the practice of re-employing workers following an injury or illness. Known as the “re-employment obligation,” the new provisions of the act requires employers to modify duties and make reasonable changes to the workplace to accommodate the needs of injured workers. Employers that fail to comply may be subject to an administrative fine.
