General Information

A graduated return-to-work program is one type of return-to-work program. It is part of a rehabilitation plan and may be part of a vocational rehabilitation plan.

A graduated return-to-work program may be undertaken when the work-related disability precludes a worker's immediate return to full-time pre-disability employment, but the worker is able to return to work on a reduced basis.

A graduated return-to-work program is aimed at facilitating a disabled worker's gradual transition from disability to full employment. A program may be implemented when it is considered appropriate to achieve maximum physical, psychological, economic and social recovery from the effects of a work-related disability on a timely basis.

All claims decisions are appealable to the Workers' Compensation Health and Safety Board.
