Workers' Compensation Board

Selected Aspects of Claims Processing

The Workers' Compensation Board oversees the adjudication and payment of compensation claims relating to workplace injuries. The Board relies heavily on automated information systems to process the claims. We examined selected aspects of the Board’s claims processing activities.

We also found that improvements were needed in disaster recovery planning and in controls that were intended to restrict system access to authorized users only.
