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 due to 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 show 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, the per cent of claims on partial loss-of-earnings benefits at both three and six months remained consistent. However, in 2017, there was an increase in the per cent of claims on full loss-of-earnings benefits at both three and six month's post-injury or illness.
