You should always report your workplace injury or illness even if your employer tells you not to or tells you that your injury is not covered by WSIB or if your employer asks that you use your sick credits. The WSIB will adjudicate your claim.
  3. Report your injury or illness if you need treatment from a doctor, you are unable to return to work, or if you cannot work your regular hours. A Form 6 - Worker's Report of Injury Form should be completed. Your employer should submit a F7 - Employer's Report of Injury Form within 3 days of learning of an injury of illness at work.
