If I file, will my employer's rates rise?

No.

The compensation system is based on shared liability. All employers pay rates based on the collective cost of injuries in their industry group.

If an industry group keeps injuries down, their rates should reflect this. If the industry group is more dangerous to employees, the rates will reflect that as well.

Individual employers are not assessed higher rates if they have injuries on their workplaces.

However, they may be investigated by Occupational Health and Safety officers to determine if they were ignoring obvious hazards, or actively sought to protect the welfare of their employees.
