WorkAction®: LWCC’s Return-to-Work Program
The key to getting your injured employee back to work is early intervention. LWCC’s return-to-work program, WorkAction®, capitalizes on the window of opportunity right after an employee is injured to help create a return-to-work plan that works for you.
What You Can Expect with LWCC’s WorkAction®
A vocational rehabilitation consultant will visit your work site to analyze the employee’s current job and help identify appropriate transitional duty work.
The analysis includes a written report as well as photographs of the job being performed. The job analysis is forwarded to the treating physician for review.
The physician will review the analysis and make a recommendation about the employee’s ability to return to work, along with any restrictions.
LWCC will follow up to help you create a transitional duty plan based on the physician’s recommendation.
What Our Return-to-Work Program Can Do for You
Studies show that employees recover from their injuries three times faster when they’re on the job. LWCC facilitates this process by incorporating work tasks into the physician-approved treatment plan.
By helping the employee back to work in some capacity, you ensure that productivity doesn’t suffer. The ultimate goal is for the employee to return to his or her pre-injury duties.
By helping employees get back to work, you are helping them maintain their financial security and self esteem.
Industry data indicates employer return-to-work efforts can result in significant claims cost savings.
