With effective accommodations and a clear understanding of the return-to-work process, you can be back on the job sooner and retain your income. Use this toolkit to get started.


Strategies to return employees to work as quickly and smoothly as possible benefit everyone. Use this toolkit to learn about the tools and resources available to assist you with the return-to-work process.
