Travel Expense Rates (PRO 01/2019) – May 1, 2022
This procedure establishes the current rates at which workers and WCB staff are to be reimbursed for travel and sustenance expenses. Rates are included in an appendix attached to the procedure, which has been updated to note current mileage rates, effective May 1, 2022.
The WCB considers it appropriate and fair to remedy an administrative error that adversely impacts a worker’s benefits or the costs applied to an employer’s experience which affects the employer's experience rate. A new policy and procedure have been established to create guidelines for the management and correction of administrative errors made by WCB staff.
