Injured on the job? We’re here to help.
Michael Green and Ellen Lipes are partners in a new firm, Green and Lipes, as of April 1, 2021. Both have represented injured workers with their claims and appeals before the Ontario Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) and before the Workplace Safety and Insurance Appeals Tribunal (WSIAT) for more than 30 years.
Workers’ compensation law has changed greatly over the last 25 years. There have been major revisions to the law in 1985, 1990 and 1998. The former laws in general continue to apply to accidents before specified dates. As a result, workers injured at different times have very different entitlements.

Appeals at the WSIB and at the WSIAT are complex. To find out more about this process, view the Appeal Process section.
