Ask for help with the appeal process
Use one of these options to get support with your appeal or get an overview of the appeal process.
Feel free to contact the WCAT team anytime during your appeal process. They can offer expert tips and suggestions for keeping an appeal on track – for example they can answer questions about how the process works or how to prepare a case. WCAT staff remain neutral, which means they aren’t able to offer legal advice or act as your advocate or representative.
Ask the experienced team at WCAT for support that is sensitive to Indigenous culture and approach.
Authorize someone to represent you or participate on your behalf. Representatives offer advice and help you explain your side of the appeal. They can be a family member, friend, lawyer, compensation consultant, someone from a union or employers’ association, or an advisor from the Employers’ Advisers Office or the Workers’ Advisers Office.
