The process of returning an injured worker to their previous job or a modified position needs to be handled properly to reduce re-absenteeism and employer risk. Getting the employee back to their previous job duties and regular hours is the goal, which is tackled carefully to reduce re-injury. Much like getting an injured athlete back in the game, return to work coordination involves an individual approach and is a thorough process to ensure the future success of the employee and company.
