Get Employees Back to Work with Transitional Duty

Transitional duty is important to workers compensation management to avoid the negative consequences that result when employees are out of work for a long time, such as:

  • Employees become physically deconditioned and lose marketable employment skills.
  • Employees become psychologically "disemployed" and disassociate from their identity as employees.
  • Out-of-work employees often become clinically depressed.
  • The employee's routine changes to one no longer including a regular daily work routine.
  • Indemnity payments increase and claims become more expensive.
  • Attorneys become involved.
  • Employees are afraid of being re-injured.

The permanency award is likely to be higher.
