Unit staff assigned to the WSIB portfolio assist both members and staff in understanding the rules and policies around WSIB and are available to assist in several areas, from answering simple questions to representing OPSEU members at both the WSIB and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Appeals Tribunal (WSIAT).
If the WSIB denies or terminates your claim and you do not agree with the decision, you have the right to appeal. There are definite appeal time limits that need to be met according to the issue under dispute. Failure to meet the appeal deadlines will prevent you from proceeding with your appeal. Below are fact sheets that provide more information about the appeal process.
