Reviewing WorkSafeBC Claims

For decades, WorkSafeBC has been subjecting injured workers to human rights abuses by wrongfully denying or terminating their legitimate injury claims, rendering many permanently disabled and in financial ruin. We aim to advocate for these individuals and help them get the support they deserve.

 

This is done through meeting with and speaking to the individuals directly and learning their stories, and then by reviewing their WorkSafeBC files and claims for them to see if any errors were made in filling them out. If we find that no errors were made and that their claims were simply wrongfully denied, we help the injured worker challenge the denied claim and get the compensation they require.

In addition to helping to review their files, we contact and meet with advocates, lawyers, and politicians, such as local MLAs and MPs, to provide further support to the individuals and the organization and to call for legislative change that will ensure no other individuals will have to go through a similar process.

National Class Action Lawsuit

We are involved in a National Charter Class Action Lawsuit in which injured workers across the country are suing Canada's Workers Compensation Boards and tribunals who have knowingly violated the Charter of Rights of Injured Workers in Canada by denying them their lawful entitlement to workers compensation benefits. The claim has been filed with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
