Participants are wanted for a University of Waterloo research study focusing on Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) policies and what they mean for injured workers’ retirement pensions, financial security, and well-being. The specific purpose of this study is to examine how WSIB policies impact (or are anticipated to impact) injured workers after the age of 65 when workers’ compensation benefits end.
The study is looking for injured workers (older or younger than 65 years of age) who received workers’ compensation benefits in Ontario for at least five years. Participation will involve taking part in an open-ended interview. The interview will take approximately 30-60 minutes and will be arranged either in person, over the phone, or via Skype. A $50 honorarium will be provided to participants at the end of the interview. See Letter of Information for additional details.
