Section 60.9 of The Workers Compensation Act (the Act) provides the Board of Directors with the authority to stay an Appeal Commission decision if the decision is based on a misapplication of the Act, regulations or a policy of the Board.
The WCB recognizes that decisions of the Appeal Commission should be considered final. The Board of Directors will only exercise its authority to stay an Appeal Commission decision and direct a rehearing in extraordinary circumstances.
This policy identifies the conditions that must be met before the Board will consider a request to exercise its authority under section 60.9. It also explains the process for administering such requests.
