  • Access to worker file, statutory (issue in dispute) (relevance) (sensitive information)

Access to the worker's file was granted to the employer, except for a number of references to a family member of the worker. The worker's preoccupation and concerns with one of his family members during the period of time he was off work may potentially be relevant to the issue of LOE benefits but the sensitivity of the information and the fact that it pertained to a young person who is not a party to the proceedings outweighed any potential relevance to the issues in dispute.
