Reporting work-related injury or illness: Federal government employers - Overview

1. Overview

Employees have a right to compensation for work-related illnesses or injuries. The Government Employees Compensation Act (GECA) provides compensation to federal government employees who are injured while on the job or become ill because of their work. If the injury or illness leads to death, employees’ dependants may be entitled to compensation.

Employers are responsible for working with federal and provincial authorities to ensure that claims are processed quickly and properly, and to ensure a safe and timely return to work.
