Policy Development Process
June 30, 2008 and still in effect
Section 3 of the Workers’ Compensation Act S.Y. 2008 (the "Act") defines policy as "a written document, publicly available, established by the Board of Directors to provide guidance to decision-makers interpreting this Act or authority for the expenditure of funds…"
The Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB) develops policies to provide this guidance and authority in many areas including, but not limited to: compensation for workers, assessments of employers, investment of the compensation fund, health care services and return to work.
This policy provides direction to the YWCHSB on the principles and the process for the development of its policies and, specifically, on consulting stakeholders during policy development, in accordance with subsection 100 (1) (i) of the Act.
