Return to work planning and having a documented rehabilitation and return to work plan (RRTW plan) for an injured worker, are key to supporting an early return to work. You can support effective return to work planning by reaching out to your worker as soon as possible, offering flexible working arrangements and having open discussions to understand how their injury impacts them physically and mentally.
A worker has the right to refuse to be contacted by you. Respect your worker’s needs by giving them time and space to recover and provide them details on how to contact you when they are ready or need your assistance.
Take a gradual and balanced approach to understanding what your worker values. Consider work-life balance, flexible work hours, the pros and cons of working from home, and their individual needs for a return to the workplace.
