About this Event

Registration: 1 Day from 9:30am to 4:00pm via ZOOM Video Conference

This course provides a basic overview of the Workers’ Compensation system as it applies to workers who are injured or develop an occupational disease on the job. The course will look at the law and policy, how decisions are made by the WCB, and how the appeal system works for those who have to argue an appeal. We will look at the practical realities faced by injured workers trying to navigate the minefield of workers’ compensation and it appellate systems.

Instructors: Sarah O’Leary, Harrison O’Leary Lawyers, LLP and Niki Schnurr, MoveUP

Sarah O’Leary was called to the bar in 1981 and has primarily been practising Workers’ Compensation and disability-related law for the last 25 years. She has been a workers advisor, a Vice-Chair at the Appeal Division, a staff lawyer at the Legal Services Society as well as at a major health care union, and has been teaching workers’ compensation advocacy to labour unions for over two decades.
