EMPLOYERS Offsite Transitional Duty Program
A shorter recovery period often results in a quicker return to regular job duties, which benefits both your employee and your business. From the onset of any claim, your claim adjuster will be looking for opportunities to transition the injured employee back to work. There are often times when you as the employer are unable to make accommodations to facilitate return to work in a modified capacity when the employee has certain physical restrictions.
For cases like these, EMPLOYERS works with Coventry Workers’ Comp Services, Inc. (Coventry) to offer an Off-Site Transitional Duty Program that provides short-term work assignments for employees who have temporary medical restrictions that cannot be accommodated by their employer. It is a structured return-to-work program that provides meaningful and productive work at local non-profit organizations.
