Compensation for Bodily Injury Further to an Employment Injury
Commission des normes, de l'équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail
To apply for compensation for bodily injury, the worker or his or her representative must proceed in one of the following two ways:
In both cases, the worker must keep a copy for his or her own records and another copy to be submitted to his or her employer.
The worker has six months as of the date of the employment injury to submit his or her application.
Processing time can vary; the Commission sets the amount of compensation granted only when the physician is able to identify all the sequelae of the employment injury. However, if it is still impossible for the physician to determine all the sequelae of the injury two years after its onset, the Commission estimates the minimum amount of compensation and adjusts it upward as soon as possible, if applicable.
