A return to work plan lays out the steps that need to be taken to return an employee to his or her pre-injury job.
In the ideal situation, the plan is developed jointly by the injured employee, the employee’s supervisor, and if applicable, the return to work program manager (who co-ordinates the process), the worker’s health care provider (through the provision of restrictions), and the union representative, (if applicable).
Our Winsor Health medical department, can assist in the process when the need arises. A return to work plan includes the following:
- The goals of the plan.
- The actions required to achieve these goals.
- Time frames for achieving these goals.
- Health care needs.
