Return To Work / Retraining for INJURED WORKERS

Responsibilities of the Workplace Parties in Work Reintegration

The workplace parties (workers and employers) are required to co operate in the work reintegration (WR) process.

When certain conditions are met, employers may have, in addition to their obligations to co operate in the WR process, an obligation to re employ an injured worker who has been unable to work as a result of the work related injury/disease.

The focus of the workplace parties' WR activities is to work together to return the worker to the pre injury job (with accommodation where required). Ideally, the worker will return to the pre injury work.

Return To Work / Retraining for EMPLOYERS

WSIB has a new Return to Work Policy obligation for employers, the Work Reintegration Program (WR).

In November 2010 the WSIB announced new policies to compel Employers to return injured Workers to their former place of employment. These policies apply to all injured Workers no matter what their year of accident, or status in the Labour Market Re-entry Program. Penalties are one year's benefits, plus LMR costs, anywhere from $20,000.00-$70,000.00.

Our firm has specialized in the management of Return to Work obligations for 20 years. We can help you come to the most expedient resolution. Return to Work meetings are quasi judicial proceedings where determinations are made with many thousands of dollars of potential liability at stake."
