Bill 29 compensation update: Arbitrator Vince Ready ruled on loss of health and welfare benefits
Arbitrator Vince Ready has ruled that health care workers displaced by Bill 29 but who, at some point, obtained a position in the health sector with an employer that is a member of the Health Employers Association of B.C. (HEABC), may not claim loss of health and welfare benefits under Section D of the claims form.
As per Ready’s ruling, claims forms have been adjusted as required.
