Many employers are faced with complex situations where employees must be re-integrated into the workplace, sometimes after a lengthy absence or if they require a permanent accommodation. Whatever the case, employers should be prepared to manage an employee’s absence from work and subsequent return.

Implementing a Return-to-Work and Disability Management program is a way for employers to promote a safe and efficient rehabilitation process. Employer’s face substantial financial and reputational risk when they lack an effective return-to-work and disability management program.

Objectives of the Workshop

  1. Understanding of the purpose of a return-to-work and disability management program, along with roles and responsibilities of the employer, HR, Safety, and the employee.

  2. Learn various procedures and strategies for managing employee absences and reintegration back into the workplace, including modified work plans and accommodation.

  3. Learn how to navigate disability claims and how to manage the relationship with 3rd party benefits providers.

  4. Understand how pay and benefits are impacted and what the best practices are for benefits administration during an absence.

  5. Be aware of the requirements under the Duty to Accommodate and the various forms of accommodation.

This course is ideal for HR and Safety professionals, those in a supervisor or management role, or business owners.
