Video: Reap the benefits of return-to-work

Injured employees who are off work for six months have only a 50 percent chance of returning to full employment. That is bad news for them and their employers.

Employers must pay overtime to other workers or hire extra help to make up for lost production. They may also see an increase in their workers’ compensation premiums.

Meanwhile, injured workers who are idle tend to get depressed, stressed and bored. Their job skills suffer, along with their income.

A return-to-work process can help reduce the costs of workplace accidents for employers and injured workers. The process defines how injured workers, employers and health care providers will collaborate to get injured workers well and back on the job.

If you are ready to reap the benefits of return-to-work, watch this short video developed by Texas Mutual. For other videos on navigating the claims process, visit http://www.texasmutual.com/employers/claimsvideos.shtm.
