Canadian Government accused of clawing back disability dollars



A proposed class action lawsuit has been filed against the Canadian Government by a former officer of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), claiming the government has unfairly clawed back millions of dollars from disability payments to former servicemen who were injured while on the job.

Injured veterans of the RCMP are entitled to a percentage of their former salaries, but the plan treats monthly pension payments as income and deducts the pension amount from what is paid to former Forces members. It has been estimated that the action could represent hundreds of injured officers, which means compensation could cost the federal government more than $100 million if the lawsuit succeeds.
