    Hello,
    Does anything need to be adjusted on a workers comp level from or from an insurance perspective if we are setting up remote work policies? We are transitioning to a 2 days remote/3 days office hybrid work model and have employees in BC, AB and QC. Can you advise on each of these provinces?

    Thank you.

    You don’t need to do anything from a coverage perspective. At least I’m not aware of anything you need to do. If they’re already on your payroll, the fact that they’re working remotely doesn’t affect their coverage. However, you do need to implement a plan to protect them against workplace health and safety hazards, except in Alberta where a home office isn’t considered a workplace and OHS protections don’t apply to workers working from home.
