Workers' Compensation Safety Board of Nova Scotia

Entitlement

Policy Overview

Note: This Overview is intended to provide a general guide to Board policies and programs. It does not constitute official Board policy.

The policies contained in this section deal primarily with issues of determining when a worker is eligible for workers' compensation benefits, as opposed to the benefits payable after entitlement has been established -- these are described in later sections.

Entitlement guidelines for both injuries and occupational diseases are covered in this section.
