General Information

Every decision of the Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB) must be based on the merits and justice of the case. This means decision-makers must take into account all facts and circumstances relating to the case, as well as all relevant YWCHSB policies and provisions of the Workers’ Compensation Act S.Y. 2008 (the Act).

Purpose

The purpose of this policy is to guide those required under the Act to make decisions concerning compensation benefits. Within the parameters of the Act and YWCHSB policy, decision-makers have ample opportunity to exercise their discretions to ensure compassion, respect and fairness in all decisions.
