I am requesting every one that knows me and trust my opinion to send this message to all people in Canada
Workers have asked me how to pay back every thing I have done for them. The time has come There is question out there if Covid 19 is work related?
There is NO Legislation that would prevent acceptance of COVID 19 claims when it is reasonably related to the work environment. Do not be afraid of submitting a claim, be concerned about NOT submitting a legitimate claim and your long term effects that are not yet determined. It is not only your right is lawful and expected for workers, doctors and employers to submit the Workers Compensation claims.
Under Legislation an occupational disease that is caused by the work environment is work related. If your work has contributed to a physical or psychological injury it is work related. Do not question your right to apply for compensation. You should submit the claim and WCB must make a decision. If you are a front line worker it is most evident and important. It is my opinion the Alberta Government is proposing changes to Legislation to attempt to minimize the claims submitted. Do not listen to anyone that is discouraging you not to put in a claim for compensation.
