Promoting Retention or Reemployment of Workers After a Significant Injury or Illness
Publisher: Washington, DC: Mathematica Policy Research
Oct 22, 2015
This is one of three policy action papers prepared as part of the Stay-at-Work/Return-to-Work Policy Collaborative, an initiative funded by the Office of Disability Employment Policy in the U.S. Department of Labor. Each year, millions of workers in the United States lose their jobs or leave the workforce because of a medical condition. Keeping these workers in the labor force could help them stay productive, maintain their standard of living, and avoid dependency on government programs. In this paper, we suggest policies and practices that would encourage employers to retain or hire these workers, and we include specific recommendations for incorporating these policies in federal efforts.
