An incentive to help injured workers stay on the job: Stay at Work is a new financial incentive that encourages employers to bring their injured workers quickly and safely back to light-duty or transitional work by reimbursing them for a portion of their costs. Eligible employers can be reimbursed for 50% of the base wages the employer paid to the injured worker and for some of the cost of training, tools or clothing the worker will need to do the light-duty or transitional work.
Bringing down costs and speeding recovery: The purpose of this new incentive is to encourage more employers to return their injured workers to light-duty or transitional jobs with the doctor's approval. This medical best practice can help the worker recover, and it also can reduce costs for the employer.
