Get workers back on the job with light-duty assignments
Is your workforce ailing? Maybe one employee who’s out hurt his back cleaning gutters at home, another went ahead and had that elective foot surgery she’d been putting off, and another is out on a workers’ compensation claim after slipping in mud.
It would be good to have them back on the payroll doing something productive, instead of drawing worker’s compensation or burning up their medical leave, but their doctors haven’t yet cleared them to return to their regular duties.
You may be able to get them back to work sooner, though—if you put an effective light-duty return-to-work program in place.
