Return to work

We’re here to help you and your employee after a workplace injury or illness. With our help, 9 out of 10 people injured on the job return to work within 12 months.

Our return-to-work services

After a workplace injury or illness, we’ll work with you and your employee to build a customized return-to-work plan. Our goal is to get your employee back to safe and suitable work and get you back to business as usual.


Return to Work (Work Reintegration) policies and a NEER policy came into effect on July 15, 2011. 

The policies were developed to support the Return-to-Work Program’s vision and principles. The primary focus of the policies is to return people back to work with their injury employer to the extent possible.
