How does your return-to-work program stack up?
To make an early return-to-work program successful, employers need the following:
* Immediate injury reporting to your agent or carrier.
* Medical management--remain in communication with your employee.
* Ability to return the employee to work in some capacity.
* Post-injury review--investigate what happened and avoid future incidents.
When an employee is injured, trigger your early return-to-work program by immediately reporting the injury to your workers' compensation claim manager. These steps will help save you money.
