Join key members of our WSIB practice group to gain new tools and takeaways for your WSIB toolbelt. We will explore key recent caselaw and use practical scenarios to provide you with practical insights to apply to your challenging cases. This session will include tips for the seasoned WSIB coordinator tackling increasing claim costs as well as strategic insight for the general practitioner seeking to understand the implications of WSIB claims on employment matters.


Key takeaways will include:

  • Harassment investigation report requests: co-operating with the WSIB while protecting organizational interests;
  • Identifying and maximizing opportunities to address civil claims through the WSIAT (Section 31 Application process);
  • Reporting COVID-19 and adverse reactions to vaccination claims to the WSIB;
  • Identifying and addressing the potential impacts of re-employment and cooperation obligations on employment terminations; and,
  • Using strategic factors to determine when to challenge WSIB decisions.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this seminar, attendees will develop tools to identify and address WSIB issues that may intersect with parallel litigation, as well as WSIB-specific reporting obligations and cost-containment considerations. Attendees will also gain practical insights for evaluating and mitigating risks dealing with terminating the employment of an employee with an active WSIB claim.

This webinar will include an interactive Q&A feature. A panel discussion will be built into the last 10 minutes of the session to address audience questions.

Hicks Morley will endeavour to accommodate guests with a disability in accordance with the Ontario Human Rights Code guidelines and other applicable legislation.
