Tracking down Yukon's delinquent employers

Compensation board and Canada Revenue Agency team up to get non-compliant employers
||Last Updated: 02/27/2008

Yukon employers might try to run but they can't hide from the tax man or from the workers' compensation board.

A new agreement between Canada's tax agency and the territory's workers' compensation board will help both agencies track down employers that don't pay taxes or haven't registered with the compensation board.

The agreement allows both organizations to share employer data so they can determine who is not registered with either organization. Once a delinquent employer has been identified, a letter will be mailed urging the employer to register with either agency or face financial penalties.
