November 2017 WCB Advocacy Workshop
Presenters: Janet Patterson & Iain Macdonald with Judith Lee
This workshop will focus on those occupational diseases (OD) identified in Schedule B, with the exception of ASTDs. There will be an overview of the scope of Schedule B and the building blocks for OD cases in general (diagnosis, exposure, causation, disability). We will then focus on particular issues which arise in two types of cases: respiratory diseases (asthma, asbestosis, etc.) There will also be a discussion of survivor benefits.
