Modernization of the Workers’ Compensation Act and Occupational Health and Safety Act
On behalf of the Government of Yukon, Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB) carried out a public engagement in late 2019 and early 2020 to hear from stakeholders and the public about the modernization of the Workers’ Compensation Act and the Occupational Health and Safety Act.
Throughout the engagement, we offered ways for members of the public and stakeholders to contribute to the development of legislation that meets the needs of Yukon’s workers and employers now and into the future.
What happens next
We are working on a “What We Heard” report, summarizing the feedback we received from the public and stakeholders.
The Government of Yukon will take this into consideration when drafting the legislation.The “What We Heard” report will be shared here at a later date.
