Rules Governing Conflict of Interest for Board Members
September 30, 1996 - September 30, 2006
The Workers' Compensation Act of the Yukon Territory requires that the Board develop rules concerning conflict of interests that must:
(i) define circumstances that will constitute conflict of interest for its
(ii) govern disclosure of conflicts of interest, and
(iii) provide guidelines regarding participation and voting at meetings of the board by a member who has a conflict of interest.
This policy provides rules that satisfy the requirements of the Workers' Compensation Act by providing conflict of interest guidelines and a code of conduct for Board members carrying on their duties as fiduciaries. The rules also provide guidance to Board members when they are acting in a judicial role.
