The policy states that the non economic loss payment (NELP) is to compensate the worker for the impact the injury has on
the worker’s life outside the workplace. Therefore, the
worker is not eligible for a NELP when there is an
immediate fatality. For this policy, “immediate fatality” is
defined as death within 30 calendar days of the date of the
work-related accident. The 30 calendar days include the
date of accident. If, however, death is not immediate and it is clear the worker has or will have a permanent clinical impairment if he or she lives, the worker is eligible for a non economic loss payment (NELP).
