Written Submissions

written submissions

A written submission is your opportunity to tell us in writing why, if you are the appellant, you should win your appeal and what benefits you think you should receive. If you are the respondent, it is your opportunity to tell us in writing why the appellant should not win their appeal. As a respondent you may also support the appellant's position.

With your written submission, you have the opportunity to provide new information or evidence to the vice chair, whose responsibility is to make a fair decision on your appeal. The method of appeal by written submissions is often suitable for appeals that deal with medical, legal, or policy issues.

Since the appeal to WCAT is your last appeal opportunity, it is a good idea to prepare yourself as fully as you can.

Note: We cannot decide any issue or question that was not contained in the WorkSafeBC or Review Division decision. If you want a decision on something new, you must ask WorkSafeBC for it.
