Dec. 8: 2017 Workers’ Comp Rates Announced


The Board of Directors of the WCHSB will moderately increase some assessment rates in 2017, after it distributes another $10 million of its surplus reserves to employers as a rebate this year. Slightly less than half of Yukon’s 3,576 registered employers will see a rate increase in 2017. The largest will be 5%. Despite the increases, almost all rate groups will still pay less than they did from 2009 to 2015.
