Return to Work

General Information

All employers and workers are obliged under the Workers’ Compensation Act S.Y. 2008 (the “Act”) to co-operate in the worker’s early and safe return to suitable and available employment during recovery from a work-related injury.


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.

Purpose

This policy outlines the legislated responsibility of a health care provider, when
requested, to provide the Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board
(YWCHSB), the worker and the employer, with information concerning the worker’s
functional abilities, as set out in section 42 of the Act.
