IDEL Online Application – Ontario
By now, nearly all business in Ontario are aware that the government has enacted legislation to provide workers with 3 days of paid leave for reasons related to COVID-19. Employers seeking reimbursement for the leave, must make an application to the Workplace Safety & Insurance Board (WSIB), within 120 days of the date on which the IDEL leave was provided to the worker. The leave is available to workers for absences related to COVID-19 between April 19, 2021 and September 25, 2021.
Relevant issues regarding the scope of the leave have been previously addressed, in this post we are sharing the link where employers can complete the online IDEL Application for reimbursement.
Finally, while the application for reimbursement is made through the WSIB, it has no impact on the employers’ experience rating scheme. Further, the cost of the leave is not being charged to the WSIB fund – but instead is being paid for by the government of Ontario.
