Both the employer and worker have the right to appeal a decision made on a claim. Employers can appeal WCB decisions regarding claims or matters related to company classifications and assessment rates.
If a worker disagrees with a claim decision after discussing it with a case worker, they may file an appeal within 30 days of receiving a written decision. It’s important to note that the appeal process is not intended as a second look at the entire claim. The process exists to review specific errors or oversights.
It is important that appeals be as specific as possible.
Whether you are a worker or an employer, this brochure is intended to help you understand your options, and to explain the process when you have questions or concerns about a decision of the WCB.
Workers can complete the Notice of Appeal form through their secure WCB Online Account. Alternatively, PDF forms can be completed:
