Determining Suitable Employment & Earnings Capacity Loss
December 31, 2006 - June 30, 2008
The injured worker, the employer, the Yukon Workers' Compensation Health & Safety Board (YWCHSB) and health care providers share responsibility for assisting the worker in mitigating the effects of a work-related disability. This is typically achieved through the recovery, rehabilitation and return-to-work processes.
In some cases, a worker will be unable to fully overcome the effects of a work-related injury and will continue to have a loss of earnings capacity. This worker is entitled to compensation for the difference between their pre-injury earnings, as determined under Policy CL-35, "Loss of Earnings Benefits", and their estimated earnings capacity once rehabilitation is completed.
This policy, which outlines how the YWCHSB will estimate a worker's loss of earning capacity, will ensure that a fair, reasonable and predictable approach is followed.
