Avoid potential fines. Know your rehabilitation obligations and facilitate a smooth transition back to productivity.

Returning injured employees is an important part of their rehabilitation. An unsuccessful or prolonged return to work can be detrimental to your staff and your organisation.

Failure to meet these obligations can expose you to significant fines and potential prosecution.

This course covers the importance of establishing and implementing return to work plans that give the best chance of measuring a worker's compliance, and the consequences should a worker fail to meet their obligations under the Act.
