'BEST PRACTICES' ENCOURAGING RETURN TO WORK


Background

Many firms in California have adopted practices to improve return to work of injured employees. Policymakers may wish to encourage increased emphasis on return to work as a means to reduce uncompensated wage loss.

Description

This project will collect data on the return-to-work practices of California firms and examine their effectiveness.

Goals and Objectives

The goal of this project is to provide information on the most effective return-to-work practices of California employers. This information is intended to assist employers and employees to determine which return to work practices may be applicable to their needs.

Status

The project is underway.
