What do Worker Advisors Do?

Worker Advisors help you and your dependents with issues or disagreements you may have on your WCB claim. They provide expert advice and act as your representative.

Worker Advisors offer:

  • Education – They explain WCB legislation and policy and how it applies to your claim.
  • Advice and Support – They provide advice and guidance on working through the WCB appeal process and reviewing your eligibility for benefits. They will assist you with locating evidence to support your case.
  • Representation – They will represent you at all three levels of appeal - the WCB Customer Service Department, the Dispute Resolution and Decision Review Body (DRDRB), and the Appeals Commission (AC). Advisors will attend hearings with you, write submissions, and make arguments on your behalf.
