    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 claim 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. 

  • Step 2

    Complete a Request for a Review form or write a letter to the Registrar of the Review Committee. Your letter must include:

    • Your claim number or employer number;
    • Date of the decision letter you want reviewed;
    • Reason(s) you disagree with the decision;
    • What you think the decision should be: and,
    • What type of hearing you wanted, whether oral or documentary.

     

    Note: you must request a review within three years of the original decision.
