Work Obligations For Employees After Work Injuries

If or when your employee unfortunately sustains some sort of injury in the workplace, they are expected to be allowed to leave the job for a while to recover. However, when the recovery period is over, workers have a number of obligations that they are expected to follow. We’ll show you what they are:


  • Employees need to make reasonable efforts to return to the job.
  • Employees need to be active participants in and cooperating with the plan to return to the workplace.
  • Employees need to make use of any occupational rehabilitation services which may be provided. They need to cooperate with the rehabilitation service’s provider.
  • Employees need to cooperate and be actively participating in the assessments of the work capacity, their rehabilitation progress and their future employment prospects.
  • Employees need to actively participate and cooperate in an interview which is made to enhance the opportunities that are available to them when they return to work.
