Obligations

Under the Act, workers are required to cooperate with their insurer, their employer and their doctors. This helps the insurer make a decision on the claim and also helps workers receive appropriate medical treatment and rehabilitation as quickly as possible.

To make sure a claim is made efficiently, as a worker you must:

  • complete and sign all necessary forms
  • let your insurer know if your condition or treatment changes
  • make sure your insurer has all current workers' compensation medical certificates
  • You can only receive workers' compensation benefits if a copy of these is provided.
