Building a Business Return to Work Policy in Virginia

Employees who have experienced an accident or illness due to working for your company can return to work more quickly if your company has a return to work policy. A return to work policy can not only help an employee transition back into the workplace and maintain their standard of living, but it can help companies reduce the costs of VA workers’ comp insurance claims. A return to work policy is a plan to provide short-term accommodations and transitional duties which allow the employee to return to work sooner or continue to work while treating their work-related injury or illness. Many employees who are injured may still be able to do other types of work for your company. The first step may be to have the employee provide written documentation of their injuries and medical restrictions. Meeting with the injured employee weekly to discuss and document progress and adjust duty tasks can help your employee transition more effectively. It may help to create a list of ongoing tasks which require light physical activity that an injured employee could perform, such as clerical or answering phones.
