Policy GN-07 - Negligence Cost Transfer

Effective Dates

January 1, 2016 and still in effect


General and Corporate

General Information

Section 71(2) of the Workers’ Compensation Act S.Y. 2008 (the "Act") allows Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB) to charge all or some of the costs of a claim to a negligent employer’s experience account, if that employer is not the employer of the injured worker or a worker of that employer.


Where negligence has been determined by YWCHSB, this policy provides direction on how costs are transferred.
