Written submissions can be a critical component of a Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) claim, but writing a good letter is not as easier task for everyone.
The goal of this course is to teach participants how to write and what needs to be included a concrete WSIB submission, and provide a template for advocates to follow when using a written submission.
Topics explored include:
- hearing options for WSIB appeals and the specific criteria considered when determining whether or not a written submission
- important points of a written submission pertinent to the Workplace Safety and Insurance Appeals Tribunal practice direction for written submissions;
- myths associated with oral hearings and how they can be used to improve writing skills begin an exploration of the differences between the two types of appeal; and
- the traditional structure of the submission with specific details for each section.
Participants will also learn how to write to doctors and the effect the letter has both on the medical professional’s reply and on the decision maker on the file.
