General Information

In Yukon, workers are covered by the Workers’ Compensation Act (the Act). Their employers must pay assessment premiums to the Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB) so that workers are protected if they have work-related injuries.

Sole proprietors may choose to be covered and pay their own premiums.

Persons providing taxi cab services are workers, employers or sole proprietors under the Act

Purpose

This policy provides direction to persons providing taxi cab services to determine if they are workers, employers or sole proprietors under the Act.

  • Workers must be protected by the workers’ compensation coverage of their employers.
  • Employers must have workers’ compensation coverage for their workers.
  • Sole proprietors have the option of getting workers’ compensation coverage for themselves.

YWCHSB applies its policy EA-02, "Determining the Status of a Person: Employer, Worker, Sole Proprietor or Non-Working Director" to determine in which category a person fits.
