General Information

The Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB) is responsible for safeguarding the integrity and viability of the workers’ compensation system, while recognizing the collective liability of employers for workplace injuries. The YWCHSB will ensure that its obligations to workers and employers are met through efficient, appropriate and fair decisions.

An Investigation Unit has been established to conduct and co-ordinate the YWCHSB’s investigation activities. The Investigation Unit’s primary objective is to gather accurate and relevant primary information in a timely manner. This information will be used to facilitate decision-making and improve customer service.

Specifically, the Investigation Unit will work to:

  1. ensure compliance with all the Workers’ Compensation Acts (the "Acts") and YWCHSB policies;
  2. improve the quality of YWCHSB decisions; and
  3. ensure the validity of assessment reporting, employer registration, claims for compensation and service provider billing.
