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