Return To Work Coordination

We understand how costly it is for your organization to have an employee off work. That’s why our goal is to establish a Return To Work strategy specific to the employee, reducing the costs associated with the absence. We explore any barriers affecting the employee’s recovery and return to work.

Early intervention is a crucial part of this process as strategies can be identified to help the employee Return To Work with minimal time lost. A CBML Return to Work Specialist will focus on the employee’s return in order to help you reduce lost productivity.


We See Capability Where Others Don’t

Our highly skilled and experienced case managers are able to distinguish true physical and psychological illness from underlying industrial relations issues, and will work with you to develop a plan to help your employee address the root cause of the absence and return to productivity.

Our Return To Work plans are individualized to ensure efficient and effective solutions. Here’s how we make it work:

  • We use the information and suggestions from all stakeholders to develop an effective Return To Work plan.
  • We focus on the employee’s capabilities.
  • We ensure that all elements of the return to work plan are in place, from equipment and services to assistive technology and job modifications.
  • We monitor return to work progress, making changes as required.
  • We develop and maintain an atmosphere of trust and mutual support with workers, employers and unions.
  • We ensure suitable medical treatment and rehabilitation are provided.
  • We identify other support services that might assist the worker.
