Policy Purpose

The Workers Compensation Act (the Act) establishes the framework for reconsideration of WCB decisions. Reconsideration is an internal review of a WCB decision, conducted by someone other than the primary-decision maker.  In most cases, reconsideration is required before a WCB decision may be appealed to the Appeal Commission.

This policy identifies the types of decisions the WCB will and will not reconsider, the principles governing reconsiderations, and the basic features of the reconsideration process.
