Allowed lost-time claims receiving loss-of-earnings benefits
Loss-of-earnings benefits are the wage-loss benefits a person receives for time lost from work because of a work-related injury or illness occurring on or after January 1, 1998. Improved recovery and return-to-work outcomes will be reflected in this measure.
The bar graphs below illustrate the per cent of claims receiving loss-of-earnings benefits at three and six month’s post-injury or illness. Each bar is split by level of loss-of-earnings benefits - full and partial. Over the past five years, claim durations have remained consistently low, an indication of effective programs and interventions that result in positive recovery and return-to-work outcomes. In 2017, both partial and full loss-of-earnings benefits increased by one per cent.
