Some SLASTO staff track applications from the time the file is received until resolution. They make sure the file is complete, schedule hearings and case conferences, respond to inquiries from the parties and provide education and information. Others resolve appeals and applications outside of the hearing process using case conferences and other methods of alternate dispute resolution.

Staff also support the organization in areas like finance, human resources, legal services, IT and communications.
