Manitoba strategy on claims suppression

Manitoba’s WCB is promising action following their release of a research report on claims suppression prepared by Prism Economics & Analysis (author of a recent report on the same topic for the Ontario’s workers’ compensation board)

It will be interesting to see if these changes meet the recommendations made by the Manitoba Federation of Labour, who also addressed claims suppression in a 2010 report and their 2013 submission to the Petrie review.
