Delaware Business Insurance Update From CNC Insurance Associates, "Injured Workers Who Don't Return to Work in 60 Days May Never Return" 2-26-18

Ok here is the scoop. If you have an injured employee who is out on a work comp claim, do your best to get them back to work within 60 days. There was a study done a decade ago by the Menninger Foundation that showed the validity of getting workers back before 60 days. I have seen through my experience that this holds true today.
So how can employers help get this accomplished? Return to Work Programs, are the best way to get injured employees back on the job.

Return to Work Programs - What's in it for YOU the Business Owner?
* Reduction of work comp costs as a result of reduced claim payouts
*Elimination of costs for recruitment and hiring of replacement workers
* Shortened work interruptions due to inexperienced new employees
*Positive goodwill between owners and employees
* Lower overtime costs to maintain work loads

To establish your own Return To Work Program you need to partner up.
Call your insurance professional and insurance company to provide guidance and resources on these programs. Don't think it is a monumental task, call us. We have helped many of our clients get started and keep these programs going. Until next time be careful out there and know your risks.
