Objections to FEL Determinations


Any worker or employer whose interests are affected by compensation for future loss of earnings arising from a work-related injury has a right to object to that decision based on the circumstances as they were, at the time of original determination.


Basis of objection

The issues on objection may be that

  • the WSIB did not properly consider all the evidence available at the time of the determination or review, or that
  • the WSIB did not properly interpret the available evidence in calculating the worker's future loss of earnings.

Application date
