Limitation Periods for Claims Reviews & Appeals
June 30, 2008 - June 30, 2011
A worker, dependent of a deceased worker or employer who disagrees with a claims decision made by the Yukon Workers' Compensation Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB), or a hearing officer of the YWCHSB, or the Workers' Compensation Appeal Tribunal (Tribunal), may file a request for a review or appeal of that decision within 24 months of the decision.
This policy explains the limitation period for reviews and appeals. Under subsection 52(1) of the Workers' Compensation Act S.Y. 2008 (the "Act"), a worker, dependent of a deceased worker or employer must file a notice of review or appeal within 24 months from the date of the decision. Under subsection 52(2) of the Act, the notice of a review or appeal must be filed by June 30, 2010 for all decisions made before July 1, 2008.
