The Workers' Compensation Act provides compensation coverage to a "worker", however, not all persons are considered "workers" under the A. Upon application to, and acceptance by the board, an eligible person is "deemed" to be a worker and coverage under the Act is extended.
All claims decisions are appealable to the Workers' Compensation Health and Safety Board.
An employer may appeal any assessment decision to the Workers' Compensation Health and Safety Board within 180 days of the decision being made.
