Return to Work
The vocational rehabilitation policy supports the fundamental principle "to provide injured workers with rehabilitation to assist them to overcome the effects of workrelated injuries as much as possible."
This policy falls within the context of the Yukon Worker's Compensation Health and Safety Board's (YWCHSB) strategic plan which states, in part: "Working together with workers, employers, injured workers and their families, the YWCHSB focuses on addressing the needs of workers and employers in changing work environments and helping workers overcome worker-related injuries in both human and economic terms".
This policy outlines the objectives, application and process, services, and the roles and responsibilities of participating members of the case management team in vocational rehabilitation.
