The WSIB’s internal documents on adjudicating mental stress claims

We entered a new era in the compensation of work-related mental disorders on January 1st this year:

After less than five months of the new regime, I still don’t know a great deal about how the WSIB is applying these policies in practice.

To increase my understanding, in April I made a freedom of information request for all of the WSIB’s internal documents giving its decision-makers advice, guidance or direction about adjudicating claims under the new policies.

In May, the WSIB granted my request, and disclosed over 400 pages of documents.

I haven’t had time to go through the material in detail yet. When I do, I’ll  publish a post (or two) analyzing the most important documents.

However, I want to make the documents available immediately to any injured worker or advocate who may be interested in them. Therefore, I’ve bundled them into a .zip file which you can download by clicking this link. (Note: it’s a 19 MB file that downloads automatically.)

Enjoy responsibly!
