Rate Groups for Executive Officers in Construction - Request Form
Published on: 01/12/2016
In response to a number of requests received following last week's bulletin on the WSIB Rate Group 755 – Non-Exempt Partner and Executive Officer in Construction (click on this link), we are providing more information on this rate group, including how to properly register for it.
As the attached request form notes, "to determine if an individual is an executive officer of a corporation, the WSIB considers if the individual's name is recorded in the employer's minute book as an officer/director, and if their status can be verified by the WSIB by reviewing resolutions by the board of directors, corporate by-laws, or public records filed with other government authorities."
Moreover, to be classified as an executive officer, the individual may not perform any construction site work, meaning "...any manual work of a skilled or unskilled nature, the operation of equipment or machinery, or the direct on-site supervision of workers." Site visits are allowed, as long as no work is performed when the individual is on site.
If you have any questions about Rate Group 755 or the process for approval for executive officers, please contact Patrick at 905-629-7766 ext. 222 or email@example.com.
