worker advocates

Harrison O'Leary is a law firm specializing in workers' compensation and administrative law. 

Our practice is dedicated to representing and assisting workers and trade unions.

We act for workers throughout British Columbia in their claims with the Workers' Compensation Board and at the appeal tribunals overseeing Board decisions, WorkSafeBC’s Review Division and the Workers’ Compensation Appeal Tribunal (WCAT).

We represent:

  • Workers who are disabled by work injury or occupational disease

  • Family members of workers who have died as a result of their work

  • Workers who have faced discriminatory action from their employer for raising health and safety issues in their workplace.

We act for injured workers who require assistance accessing other types of disability benefits such as CPP Disability.

We provide a range of services to trade unions fighting to protect the rights of injured workers. For information on past and future workshops and other materials please see our Resources page.
