A dirty business: The exclusion of Alberta farm workers from injury compensation




Bob Barnetson


The report concludes by identifying four strategies available to advocates seeking basic workers’ compensation benefits for farm workers. Farm workers may be able to generate increased employer interest in the liability protection provided by workers’ compensation by suing employers for workrelated
injuries. Farm worker advocates may also exert political pressure on the government by highlighting how Canadian farm workers have worse access to workers’ compensation coverage than do international migrant workers. It is also possible to challenge the constitutionality of the farm worker exclusion. Finally, farm worker advocates may be able to exert labour market pressure on employers by publicizing working conditions on individual farms via social media.
