WorkSafeNB has implemented an average employer premium hike of 33 per cent for 2017. WorkSafeNB officials warn another similar large rate increase can be expected in 2018.
The Greater Moncton Chamber has been working with other Chambers of Commerce around the province, and other business organizations, to lobby WorkSafeNB to make public the reasons for these dramatic increases. We have also lobbied the province government to make the legislative changes necessary to prevent more workers’ compensation rate shock. We need your help to make WorkSafeNB and government aware of the impact of back-to-back increases in this payroll tax.
We have created a letter-writing campaign in which you can send your concerns to your MLAs. Click on this link to access the letter and select the MLAs to which you want to direct your letter. It is by hearing the voices of individual business owner-operators that we can collectively bring about the changes need to create a sustainable workers’ compensation system for both employers and employees.
Thank you for your support with this campaign.
