Policy EN-08 - Gradual Onset Musculoskeletal Disorders

Effective Dates

July 1, 2008 and still in effect



General Information

The Workers’ Compensation Act S.Y. 2008 (the "Act") states that those who experience work-related injuries are entitled to compensation. A gradual onset musculoskeletal disorder may be compensable if it arises out of and in the course of employment.


This policy provides direction when a claim for compensation involves a gradual onset musculoskeletal disorder. All claims for compensation will be adjudicated in accordance with Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB) policies, "Arising Out of and In the Course of Employment" and "Merits and Justice of the Case".
