Employers want employees to return to work from their occupational injuries in the least amount of time way from work.
Studies show that the employee will more likely make a full recovery and continue working a long and productive work life if they return in the least amount of time, but retuning to work often carries with it restrictions, disabilities, obligations and frustrations (on both sides).
Such situations require careful assessments and knowledge of all the elements necessary to fit together what often seems a complicated puzzle. Leaving out an assessment of employer obligations of just one piece of such a puzzle can have serious ramifications. And that's where this training session can help!Learning Objectives
