and still in effect
Assessment premiums paid to the Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB) by registered employers are initially submitted on a self-assessed basis, using estimated payroll data which is subsequently adjusted by the employer when actual annual payrolls are known. In addition to the self-assessed payroll amounts, the applicable assessment rate category(s) used is significantly determined on the basis of the operating information submitted by each employer.
Examinations help the YWCHSB to ensure that employers are assessed fairly and equitably and that they are meeting the requirements of the Workers’ Compensation Act S.Y. 2008 (the "Act").
This policy provides direction to the YWCHSB on the examination of employers’ records.
