Can I appeal an assessment decision?

Absolutely, if you are an employer.

Employers may appeal any written decision on their assessment account that pertains to:

  • classification;

  • rate of assessment;

  • audit results;

  • collection activities;

  • non-payment of penalties; or

  • non-reporting of penalties.


Before appealing, please contact the staff member who made the decision or the Director of Assessments to ask why the decision was made. This is often the simplest way to resolve any misunderstandings or communications problems that led to the dispute.

Talking may eliminate the formal review or appeal.

You have 180 days from the date on the assessment decision to appeal to the Board of Directors.

You must appeal in writing to the Board of Directors. A reasonable substitute is acceptable if you cannot read or write.

You can obtain a Notice of Appeal of an Assessment decision form here.

Please complete the entire form and attach the information requested to avoid delaying the process.

You may mail or deliver the form to:

Board Manager
Workers' Compensation, Health and Safety Board
401 Strickland Street
Whitehorse, Yukon Y1A 5N8

After the appeal is accepted, the board will convene an Appeal Panel.

After reviewing the evidence, the panel will make a decision. That decision is final and conclusive and not open to question or review in any court.

However, if you believe the panel erred in law or jurisdiction you may appeal to the Supreme Court.

If you have any questions, we’re happy to answer them.
