If you suffer from hearing loss and believe it is related to your employment, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation coverage.
If you would like to submit a claim, first consider the following two questions.
1. While working in Yukon, were you around hazardous noise for either:
- two or more years continuously? or
- five or more years intermittently?
2. Did you have a hearing test, either:
- at the time you were around workplace hazardous noise? or
- within two years since you were last around workplace hazardous noise?
If you answered “yes” to questions 1 and 2, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation coverage related to your hearing loss.
