Benefit Adjustment for Workers

In June 2023, WorkplaceNL started to issue retroactive benefit adjustments, plus interest, to many workers. This applies to certain benefits paid between July 1, 2016 and December 31, 2022.

We apologize for our error, and appreciate your patience as we now issue payments in batches. We expect to finish sending payments by the end of October, 2023.

Please see the FAQs below for more information.
