I’m counting on you to support Bill 191, Workplace Safety and Insurance Amendment Act (Presumption Respecting COVID-19), 2020.
Bill 191 would add a presumption that COVID-19 is an occupational disease for essential workers who test positive.
Our frontline workers are heroes. They are taking care of our communities during this crisis, and we need to make sure we take care of them.
Currently, COVID-19 related WSIB claims are adjudicated on a case-by-case basis. Frontline workers who are sick must prove that their contraction of COVID-19 was work-related.
This is unacceptable.
Frontline workers who have contracted COVID-19 while serving the people of Ontario should not be burdened with excessive stress and delays in receiving the benefits they need.
That’s why I’m asking you to please make sure this legislation is passed into law.
Your support of Bill 191 will help give frontline essential workers the security and respect they deserve.
