Development and Application of Board Policy
January 1, 1993 - January 14, 2002
Section 97(3) of the WCA deals with how the Appeal Panels should deal with policy. This issue has been incorporated into a broader policy on how the whole corporation will deal with policy.
This policy is adopted to provide guidance for all branches of the corporation setting out a comprehensive approach to policy development and application. The policy includes an expectation of how staff, the internal review committee and the appeal panels will apply and treat policies.
The level(s) of discretion will be built into each policy statement, if required.
In all policy statements uppercase "Board" refers to the Board members, the chair and the alternate chair, whereas lowercase "board" means board administration and administration staff.
