Enhanced Benefits for injured workers
Friday, April 6, 2018


The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador has amended the Workplace Health, Safety and Compensation Act to enhance benefits by increasing the income replacement rate (IRR) for injured workers in Newfoundland and Labrador, or their dependents, from 80 to 85 per cent. 

Effective April 1, 2018, wage-loss benefits will be calculated at 85 per cent of an individual’s net (after tax) earnings. The individual’s gross (before tax) income is capped at the Maximum Compensable Assessable Earnings (MCAE), which is $64,375 for 2018.
