The adequacy of workers' compensation benefits

Workers who suffer permanent impairments from a work injury often rely on workers' compensation benefits to replace lost earnings. But how well are benefit programs fulfilling this role? This Issue Briefing addresses that question. It is based on research on the adequacy of workers' compensation benefits led by Dr. Emile Tompa at the Institute for Work & Health. It summarizes findings on the adequacy of benefits received by permanently disabled workers under three workers' compensation systems: two in Ontario (before and after the 1990 change in the system) and one in British Columbia (in place in the 1980s and 1990s).
