Jan. 2016: That’s when the YWCHSB’s new EA-07-Super Assessment policy takes effect. A super assessment is one over and above an employer’s ordinary annual assessment if an employer’s claims costs are significantly higher than expected. There are 2 criteria for an employer to be super-assessed:
- Its claims costs have must be higher than normal, i.e., more than 3 times the rate group average, and
- The employer must have insufficient practices and procedures for preventing injury in their workplace.
