Welcome to the Worker Advisor Office. We provide free and confidential services to injured workers and their families who require assistance when dealing with the Workers Compensation Board (WCB) of Manitoba.
The Worker Advisor Office is committed to promoting the fair, equitable and timely resolution of WCB issues for injured workers.
We do this by providing:
Advice: The WCB process can be difficult to understand. Workers can call our office to talk about what has happened with their WCB claim and get advice on their options. Our staff will listen and make suggestions to help you understand the claim process and appeal system.
Assistance: Workers who decide to appeal a WCB decision on their own can ask our office for help to prepare. This can include talking about the relevant policies, reviewing written submissions and offering suggestions on how to present your case.
Representation: The Worker Advisor Office may represent workers when we determine a reasonable argument can be made from the evidence in their WCB file. Representation includes speaking and writing to WCB staff, or appearing with you and making a presentation on your behalf at an Appeal Commission Hearing.
