Employers' Advisers Office

Welcome to the Employers’ Advisers Office (EAO) page! We provide no charge advice, assistance, representation and education to employers related to the workers’ compensation system, independent of WorkSafeBC.

Our Organization

The Employers' Advisers Office is a branch of the Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training and Minister Responsible for Labour.

We are funded by the contributions made by employers to the workers’ compensation system, and therefore our services are provided at no charge to employers operating in British Columbia.

We have eight offices around the province with locations in Richmond, Nanaimo, Victoria, Abbotsford, Kamloops, Kelowna, Prince George and Trail.

Our Mandate

Employers' Advisers provide independent advice, assistance, representation  and education to employers, potential employers and employer associations concerning workers' compensation issues  in accordance with section 94 of the Workers  Compensation Act. In fulfilling this mandate, Employers' Advisers:

  • Assist and advise employers with WorkSafeBC  requirements in claims, assessments (insurance) and prevention matters
  • Represent  employers at  WorkSafeBC, Review Division, and the Workers' Compensation Appeal Tribunal (WCAT)
  • Conduct seminars on occupational health and safety issues, claims management, (including reviews and appeals), and assessments (insurance)
  • Consult with WorkSafeBC officials to review and make recommendations to the policy departments, executive, and Board of Directors.
