Transition2Work provides benefits to employers, carriers, employees, and communities across the nation!
Employers can significantly reduce workers’ compensation and non-occupational disability claims cost by returning injured employees to the workforce as soon as they are released to modified or light duty. ReEmployAbility’s Transition2Work program provides transitional employment with a nonprofit agency for employees when the pre-injury employer is unable to accommodate a temporary light duty work release. This program enables the employee to earn income while becoming reacquainted with the work experience following a period of disability. The program could be considered an extension of an employer’s existing return to work program, retaining the employees’ status with their company by providing continuation of wages.
