WorkSafeBC calculates assessments based on payroll. Employers with an annual assessment of $1,500 or more are generally required to report payroll and remit assessment premiums on a quarterly basis.
At issue are changes to policy to reduce reporting requirements for these employers. These changes are intended to simplify reporting and payment requirements for employers and improve their experience with WorkSafeBC.

The discussion paper, draft policies, and information on how to provide feedback can be accessed through the following link:
The consultation period for this item will end at 4:30 p.m. on Friday, January 25, 2019. The Board of Directors will consider stakeholder feedback before making a decision on the proposed policy.
