Creating a successful return-to-work program requires a team effort. Strong partnerships must be at the heart of any program, and each partner must have a clear understanding of their role and responsibilities. When all partners work together and share their knowledge and expertise, a return-to-work program will run smoothly and efficiently.
Return-to-work partners include:
- WCB case worker(s) and case management team
- Relationship manager and WCB consultant
- Health care providers
- Union representatives (if applicable)
The following are some of the responsibilities for employers, workers, the WCB case worker and the health care providers.
