Policy RE-09 - Relocation of Injured Workers

Effective Dates

July 1, 2012 and still in effect


Return to Work

General Information

Vocational rehabilitation is aimed at reintegrating a worker into the workforce. As
part of a worker's overall recovery and return to work plan, vocational rehabilitation
may involve re-education or retraining as outlined in Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health & Safety Board (YWCHSB) policy RE-10, “Vocational Rehabilitation”.

It may not always be possible for a worker to receive re-education or retraining in
their local community. This policy addresses relocation of a worker for the purpose
of re-education and retraining.
