I am being terminated in June and my company wants me to sign a release form. However in the form it sates somethings that relate to WSIB. I have a past claim from last year for an injury. I want to know if singing this form will make it so that I can never reopen that claim as in the future I have been told I may have difficulties. I did speak to my HR department and they didn't sound to sure about how that would effect me

Thank you for your question. You are right to be concerned, as signing the Release means that you are releasing the company from any WSIB claims, past or present. It's also important that you have the severance offer reviewed, to make sure it is fair. Please give us a call at the number below to discuss your situation in more detail. We would be happy to assist.
