Policy Purpose

The Workers Compensation Act of Manitoba, sections 4(9) and 38, addresses impairment benefits. These benefits are calculated by determining a rating that represents the percentage of impairment as it relates to the whole body. The benefit is not related to loss of earning capacity nor is it a proxy for loss of earning capacity.
