Providing timely support to workers requires a thorough review of evidence to determine if an injury or illness is compensable under the Workers’ Compensation (WC) Act.
A new document, Is mental stress a compensable injury? What constitutes a traumatic event?, will help New Brunswick psychologists understand how the Act is applied to injuries or illnesses related to mental stress and traumatic events. It helps ensure psychologists provide the information necessary to allow WorkSafeNB to make a decision on a claim quickly with little delay to workers and their recovery.
