Request a Review

Filing Cabinet

Step 1

Before you begin:
The Review Committee encourages workers and employers to request disclosure of files before submitting a Request for Review. This ensures all parties have access to the relevant information relating to the issues in question.

If you're a worker or employer disputing a claims decision: Speak to the Claims Entitlement Supervisor, Adjudicator, Case Manager, or the Manager of Claims Services to request a disclosure of the claim file. For more information on claim file disclosures please refer to Policy 07.01, Claim File Information Access.

If you're an employer disputing an assessment decision: Speak to your Assessment Representative, or the Manager of Employer Services to request a disclosure of the employer file. For more information on employer file disclosures please refer to Policy 07.02, Employer File Information Access.

  • What you think the decision should be: and,
