and still in effect
Section 31 of the Workers’ Compensation Act, S.Y. 2008, c. 12 (the “Act”) requires Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board’s (YWCHSB) decision makers, hearing officers and the Workers’ Compensation Appeal Tribunal (WCAT) to order the payment of interest on compensation benefits according to a Board of Directors’ policy.
This policy outlines when an injured worker, spouse or dependent of a deceased worker may be entitled to interest on compensation benefits and how that interest is calculated.
