and still in effect
Employers who have injured workers receiving compensation have the right under the Workers’ Compensation Act S.Y. 2008 (the "Act") to be notified of decisions concerning entitlement to compensation as soon as practicable, and, upon request, have the right to be provided with a written progress report concerning the worker’s injury.
The Act also recognizes the right to a worker’s privacy and provides a specific appeal mechanism to workers who do not wish certain information to be disclosed.
This policy provides direction to the Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB), employers and workers regarding release of claimant information to employers.
