SST: 8 good reasons to ask for the suspension of indemnities of the CNESST

Many employers are unaware that a valuable tool exists to encourage injured workers to comply with their obligations under the Act respecting industrial accidents and occupational diseases (LATMP): section 142. This approach allows CNESST to reduce or suspend an allowance paid to a worker as a result of an employment injury, where the worker refuses to cooperate. Know how to easily identify these situations and become more proactive in the follow-up of your files in order to reduce the duration of the compensation

SST: Could Facebook and other social networks be helpful to you?

Many employers believe that publications made by employees on social media are in the realm of privacy. However, although the public is more aware of the problem of privacy and the protection of personal information, users of various social networks publish a significant amount of information and photos that may be of great interest to an informed employer. You could use publications made on social media as part of the management of your employment injury files or before the Tribunal in litigation. In this workshop, you will learn about the limitations of viewing one of your employees' profiles on various social networks, the settings that apply to their use, and the role they can play on the result of a dispute.

Taking advantage of section 329 of the LATMP: Learn to identify potential gains and to write a convincing application for sharing imputed costs

The cost of employment injuries occurring in your establishment and the contributions required of you by the CNESST can become a major financial concern for your company. Section 329 of the Act respecting industrial accidents and occupational diseases states that an employer may be entitled to sharing imputed costs in relation to an employment injury case if it is proven that the worker was “already handicapped when his employment injury appears”. Know how to take advantage of this section and learn how to assert your rights to limit the costs imputed to you as the employer by writing convincing cost sharing applications to the CNESST.
