Another call to overhaul workers’ comp

There’s been another call for an independant inquiry into the Workers Compensation system in the province.

Mary Lloyd of the Pictou County Injured Workers Association told a legislature committee the system needs an overhaul becuse it’s geared towards keeping costs down for a small group of large employers which accounts for most workplace injuries.

Her Association called for such an inquiry a few years ago but was rejected by the then NDP government as too costly and complex.
