When Worlds Collide: Navigating the Intersection Between Workers' Compensation and Human Rights Law
Workers' Compensation | Original Program Date: October 1, 2014

Since the Human Rights Code was amended to allow applicants to pursue human rights applications directly with the Human Rights Tribunal, representatives for workers and employers have been confronted with the challenge of how to respond to the growing overlap between WSIB and Human Rights Tribunal cases.  Get practical advice from highly experienced counsel about the best approach to the thorniest practice issues in this complex area, including:

  • The legal impact of WSIB and WSIAT decisions on a Human Rights Tribunal proceeding and whether issue estoppel applies
  • The jurisdiction of WSIB and WSIAT to address human rights issues
  • When it is appropriate for either side to seek deferment  of a Human Rights Tribunal proceeding pending a decision of the WSIB or WSIAT, and how the Human Rights Tribunal responds to such requests
  • The impact of receipt of WSIB benefits on Human Rights Code remedies
  • The treatment by the Human Rights Tribunal of employer behavior driven by experience rating consequences
  • The impact of WSIB and WSIAT re-employment and cooperation decisions on Human Rights Tribunal proceedings
