Policy AS-17 - Exclusion of Directors from Coverage - Not Subject to the Hazards of the Industry

Effective Dates

January 2, 1993 to July 1, 2008



General Information

Most often in the Yukon, the owner of an incorporated business is both a worker of the company and a director of that company.

Directors of incorporated companies are now deemed to be workers for the purposes of the Act unless the director applies and the board deems the director not to be a worker. It is intended to exempt only those directors who are not subject to the hazards of the business of the company while acting in their capacity as a director in the Yukon.

The exclusion of a director would only be granted if the director is not exposed to the hazards of the industry; in other words, if they are not performing any service to the incorporated company.
