Offsite Return to Work Programs 


Not all employers have "sites" where an employee can perform transitional duty until they return to work on full duty at their original job. Construction sites close when the job is completed and long haul truckers only have a tiny dispatch office. And, let's face it, some employers do not want "light duty" at their facilities. While many do not agree with this philosophy, there are options to accommodate this issue.

The solution: place an employee with a different employer. Hire a placement firm that specializes in return to work at another employer. These are called "off-site" return to work programs.


Everything you need to know is at your fingertips in the the Workers Comp Book. Chapter 8  includes tips on implementing a Work Comp program. It is a "how-to" teaching tool to achieve an effective workers' compensation program.   

Our book, Manage Your Workers' Compensation Program: Reduce Costs 20-50% will save you the price of the book many times over.
