Orlando Buonastella (Injured Workers Community Legal Clinic) and Ellen MacEachen (Professor, Western University) will talk about the situation of injured workers in their retirement years (age 65+). MacEachen will share recent research on the WSIB’s “Loss of Retirement Income” plan, the logic that prompted this plan and some of the consequences of it for workers. Buonastella will provide comments how the WSIB’s Loss of Retirement Income plan affects other benefits and share some broader reflections on the big picture, including whether this retirement plan fits into principles of just compensation.
