- Appealing a Workers' Compensation Decision, from the Canadian Bar Association BC Branch, is a factsheet that outlines the two steps involved if you think the Workers' Compensation Board, now called WorkSafeBC, made a wrong decision in your case. The two steps are review and appeal.
- Reviews and Appeals of WorkSafeBC Decisions: A Worker's Information Kit, from the Workers’ Advisers Office of the BC Ministry of Labour, is a detailed guide for injured workers and their representatives.
