Substitute teachers in Saskatchewan will now receive workers compensation if they are injured on the job. The Government of Saskatchewan has amended the Workers’ Compensation Act Exclusion Regulations and subs will now have access to wage replacement, medical and hospital treatment, and vocational rehabilitation if needed. It also means that school boards and substitute teachers are protected from lawsuits when an injury happens. Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation President Colin Keess said it’s been a long standing issue among teachers and the teachers federation in the process have been advocating on behalf of teachers on this matter for more than a decade.
