Peterborough Examiner: Gates re-introduces bill to protect injured workers

“A bill brought forward by Niagara Falls MPP Wayne Gates to protect injured workers passed first reading in the legislature Wednesday. If passed into law, the New Democrat’s Respecting Injured Workers Act (Workplace Safety and Insurance Amendment) would end the practice of deeming. Deeming is when Workplace Safety and Insurance Board decides a worker is able to earn amounts they are not actually earning, on the basis of suitable and available work they do not actually have, said Gates.”
