Schedule 1 and Schedule 2 highlights


Schedule 1 employers are those for which the WSIB is liable to pay benefit compensation for workers’ claims. Schedule 1 employers are required by legislation to pay premiums to the WSIB and are protected by a system of collective liability.

Schedule 2 employers are employers that self-insure the provisions of benefits under the WSIA. Schedule 2 employers are liable to pay all benefit compensation and administration costs for the workers’ claims.
