Return to Work Program
The Return to Work Program provides a university employee sustaining a compensible workplace injury an opportunity to return to work at full duty. If the employee is not physically capable of returning to full duty, the Return to Work Program provides opportunities when available, for employees to perform a temporary assignment that modifies the employee's regular position to accomodate the employee's physical capabilities.
A Bona Fide Employment Offer for the temporary work assignment under the Return to Work Program will not exceed sixty cummaltive calendar days per claim period. If the employee is unable to return to work without restrictions within the cumulative calendar day period, the university will place the employee on leave status at the end of that period. The employee will remain off work until he or she receives a non-restrictive release.
