The Workplace Safety & Insurance Act governs the Workplace Safety & Insurance Board (WSIB).
This Act requires that any person acting as a representative for an injured worker be either: a lawyer, a paralegal, a representative of a trade union, or a member of the Office of the Worker Advisor. Although my office is exempt from this provision, my staff are not properly trained to represent workers. This means that we cannot represent you.
However, we are able to assist you with finding the representation you deserve. Although we are unable to represent you at hearings, we are still able to review your claim file and make recommendations.
If you require assistance with any WSIB matter, please ensure you have a copy of your entire claim file. This will ensure we are able to view all the documents pertaining to your matter.
To formally request your claim file from WSIB, you can use this template letter, filling in the blanks with your own personal information.
Visit the WSIB Ontario website for more information.
