Annual Conference: Appeals Process in Workplace Safety and Insurance Law

May 17, 2017
Toronto ON

OBA Workers' Compensation LAW PROGRAM | 9:00 AM to 4:45 PM

Our Annual Conference is back again with a focus on the Appeals process. When a WSIB decision is appealed it proceeds to the WSIB Appeals Service Division (ASD) and then, if unsuccessful, the Workplace Safety and Insurance Appeals Tribunal (WSIAT). In order to navigate this system effectively, you must be familiar with both the WSIB-ASD and WSIAT Practice and Procedures.

Learn how these Appeals systems function and gain practical tips on the required forms, making written submissions and obtaining relevant documents. Understand how to obtain and evaluate medical evidence and advocate at hearings by making effective oral arguments. Leading experts will assist you in dealing with complex medical issues and handling Occupational Disease Appeals. A panel of WSIAT Vice-Chairs and WSIB Appeals Officers will provide key tips on how to present a persuasive case.

Join us for our popular Annual Conference and hear from new WSIAT Chair David Corbett at our keynote lunch address.
