Thursday, April 27, 2017 @ 9:45 AM | By John Chunn

Fasken Martineau is hosting a half-day seminar on May 31 in Toronto on how to prepare for a Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) hearing.

Appeals before the WISB and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Appeals Tribunal (WSIAT) can be complex. Effective preparation is key to a successful appeal.

This seminar, conducted by Fasken's David Marchione, will provide participants with an overview of the appeal systems at the WSIB Appeals Services Branch and the WSIAT. The seminar will review relevant forms, timelines for submission and will provide practical tips on how to manage an appeal and respond to worker appeals from the time of initial notification to the time of the hearing.

Marchione is an occupational health and safety consultant with Fasken's labour, employment and human rights practice group. He has an extensive background in policy and procedure development, workplace accident investigations and legislative compliance audits
