The Workers' Safety Insurance Board (WSIB) is the government agency that oversees Ontario's workplace safety education and training system.
WSIB entitlement provides for two forms of compensation in the event of a workplace injury: loss of earnings (wage replacement) and health care benefits (treatment expenses); however, accommodation of an injured worker is of paramount importance.
If the Appeals Resolution Officer upholds the decision to deny or terminate the employee's claim, the employee may request that his claim proceed to the final level of appeal at the Workplace Safety and Insurance Appeals Tribunal (WSIAT).
This appeal format with the WSIAT consists of an oral hearing only.
The decision of the WSIAT is final.
