The Workers' Compensation Act gives a worker, a dependent of a deceased worker, and a worker's employer the right to request a review of a decision made concerning a claim for compensation. The review is conducted by senior staff of the board, appointed by the President to sit on the Internal Reuew Committee. The parties have the right to appeal the Internal Re\iew Committee's decision to an Appeal Panel composed of members of the Board.
The Workers' Compensation Act gives employers the right to appeal board decisions relating to assessments to an Appeal Panel composed of members of the Board.
Under the Occupational Health and Safety Act, workers, employers, and trade unions representing workers may appeal decisions, orders and refusals to give orders relating to Occupational Health and Safety matters. An alleged offender who is served an administrative penalty may appeal it to an Appeal Panel.
The appeal process ensures that decisions made by the board are fair, just and consistent with the legislation and policies under which they were made.
