Recovery of Overpaid Compensation
December 31, 2011 - December 31, 2015
An overpayment of compensation occurs when a worker or worker’s dependent is paid compensation to which they are not entitled.
Section 123 of the Workers’ Compensation Act, S.Y. 2008, c. 12 (the Act) states the Yukon Workers’ Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB) may recover overpayments of compensation.
The purpose of this policy is to communicate the principles that guide YWCHSB in identifying and recovering overpayments made to workers and their dependents. The principles attempt to balance YWCHSB’s fiscal responsibilities with the interests of workers, worker’s dependents and employers.
