Review Relating to a Deceased Person
Death of the person requesting review
If a person dies after requesting a review, the review can be processed in the usual manner. However, action must be taken to identify the legal personal representative of the deceased person. The legal personal representative or “approved” person should be served with a notice of the decision, and may take appropriate action that the person could have taken, such as requesting a further review.
Commission may appoint a person to act on deceased's behalf
If there is no legal personal representative of a deceased appellant, a suitable person will be appointed by the Commission to act on behalf of the deceased.
