Compliance Branch
The Compliance Branch plays an important role in the Department of Workers' Claims. The goal of the branch is to ensure that employers subject to the Workers' Compensation Act comply with statutory requirements. The branch also encourages timely compliance through educational initiatives. Compliance is confirmed by regular inspections of employers to verify compliance with the act. The branch consists of two sections: Administrative Processing and Enforcement.
