Negligence Cost Transfer
December 31, 2015 - June 30, 2022
Section 71(2) of the Workers’ Compensation Act S.Y. 2008 (the "Act") allows Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB) to charge all or some of the costs of a claim to a negligent employer’s experience account, if that employer is not the employer of the injured worker or a worker of that employer.
Where negligence has been determined by YWCHSB, this policy provides direction on how costs are transferred.
