Apply for the Paid Sick Leave Rebate as an employer

Page 1 of 8

Use this service to apply for a rebate if you are an employer paying for your employees to take time off work due to illness (or injury not covered by any other Act, benefit or program).

When an employee takes time off work for illness or injury, employers can provide paid leave and then apply for this rebate.

Employers and their employees must be Yukon-based to be eligible for this rebate.
