Effective date: November 1, 2004
Application: All principals and subcontractors
Policy subject: Employer payroll and premiums
To provide guidelines for determining and assessing the labour portion of contracts.
- The WCB has approved POL 07/2004 governing the process for allocating the assessable labour portion of contracts when principals subcontract work.
- The following procedure provides staff with specific guidance for determining and assessing the labour portion of contracts.
- On receipt of the statement of payroll, the Employer Service Representatives (ESR) will determine whether the contractor/subcontractor is registered with WCB and has the appropriate rate classification.
- If the ESR determines that the subcontractor does not have a WCB account and the principal has not indicated the actual labour amount of the contract, the ESR will assign a labour percentage based on the attached Assessment Schedule for Contract Labour.
