Precedent Panel Decisions

If the chair of WCAT determines that the matters in an appeal are of special interest or significance to the workers' compensation system as a whole, the chair may appoint a panel of up to seven members to hear the appeal under section 238(6) of the WCA (a "precedent panel").

Section 250(3) of the Act provides that WCAT is bound by a decision of a precedent panel unless:

WCAT staff have summarized each precedent panel decision. These summaries do not form part of the decision.

You can view the full decisions by clicking on the decision numbers. You can also search precedent panel decisions on the Search Our Decisions page by selecting the "precedent" classification checkbox.
