How do I get a Clearance Letter?
You should ensure the contractor or subcontractor you hired has a valid Workers’ Compensation account because, if they don’t, you are responsible for the cost of their coverage.
To find out, ask us for a clearance letter.
This letter confirms whether a contractor or subcontractor has a Workers’ Compensation account in good standing.
Employers can withhold funds from contractors or subcontractors until they receive confirmation they have paid their Workers’ Compensation assessments. The clearance letter provides that confirmation and authorizes the release of final payment.
You can request a clearance letter from the Yukon Workers' Compensation Health and Safety Board.
