YWCHSB distributing surplus to employers

WHITEHORSE — The Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB) says it is distributing $10 million in excess reserves to employers.

Board chair Mark Pike says the YWCHSB has more money than it needs to provide benefits to workers injured on the job thanks to good investment returns and what he calls "positive operational results."
