Supporting employers

The National Return to Work Strategy aims to help employers to effectively support workers.

The worker’s employer and supervisor play an important role in a positive return to work outcome.

Workers have better outcomes when employers engage early with them, and, continue to support them through their journey back to work.

This includes consulting with the worker to develop a plan to help them recover and return to work safely.

Employers can reinforce positive workplace culture and practices by promoting their return to work programs, policies and plans, and, having skilled staff to implement them.
