Complaints in this category relate mostly to the Ministry of Labour and its agencies, programs and tribunals. The top sources of complaints tend to be the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) and the tribunal that deals with WSIB appeals, the Workplace Safety and Insurance Appeals Tribunal (WSIAT). As with all complaints we receive, we work to resolve them informally wherever possible. The Ombudsman also monitors potential systemic issues.
