BWC Offers Transitional Work Grants and Bonuses


BWC’s Transitional Work Grants helps employers create a customized plan to return an injured worker to duty with restrictions.  Transitional work uses real job duties for a specified period to gradually return the injured worker to his/her original job. Now is a good time to consider a transitional work grant; a recent change to the program means employers are no longer required to have a claim to receive a grant. Once implemented, employers can also receive a bonus for using the plan to return injured workers to work. Read more about the program here and here, and contact BWC’s transitional work unit or OMA’s Brian Jackson with questions.
