Return to Work

General Information

The Yukon Workers' Compensation Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB) provides return to work services and programs to an injured worker; the goal of which is to safely return the worker to employment or employability that is comparable to the pre-injury level and is functionally appropriate during recovery. For the return to work process to be successful there must be ongoing co-operation, commitment and communication between the employer, worker, the YWCHSB, and health care providers. It is through this partnership that the common, primary goal of a successful early and safe return to work for an injured worker can be achieved.

Purpose

This policy outlines the roles and responsibilities of the workers, employers, health care providers and the YWCHSB as members of the Case Management Team in supporting the early and safe return to work of injured workers during recovery from a work-related injury (for a full description of the team, see YWCHSB policy, "Return to Work - Overview").
