Jeffrey Hilgert

Jeffrey Hilgert, keynote speaker

Join us at the Bancroft Institute Research to Action Workshop in Toronto April 14-15. Topic: Has the WCB/WSIB Abandoned its Mandate? [download Flyer for full details]

Keynote speaker on Monday night will be Professor Jeffrey Hilgert, whose human rights analysis of workers’ compensation issues aroused great interest at the recent Meredith 100th anniversary “No half measures” Conference.

On Tuesday presenters and workshop participants will continue the discussion in light of concerns over current Board practices in claims adjudication, experience rating and surveillance. This will be an opportunity to consider the question increasingly being asked by injured workers: can the WSIB approve its draft benefits policies if they are not consistent with the Meredith principles?

Tuesday: April 15, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Friends House, 60 Lowther Avenue, Toronto
