and still in effect
Loss of earnings benefits compensate an injured worker for earnings the worker has lost because of a work-related injury. This policy outlines circumstances when these benefits end.
This policy provides direction to Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB) decision-makers on when to end a worker’s loss of earnings benefits.
Despite the end of loss of earnings benefits, a worker may still be eligible for other workers’ compensation benefits, such as health care services or permanent impairment awards.
