For employers in Washington state, there’s even more incentive. The Department of Labor & Industries (L&I) will reimburse employers for up to 50 percent of the wages and costs to train an employee in transitional work.

It’s part of a new program known as Stay at Work. During the first year, more than 1,500 employers received nearly $9 million to pay wages and expenses for their injured workers in light-duty jobs.

L&I is promoting Stay at Work via an advertising campaign and through information on the Internet at http://www.WorkingSolutions.LNI.WA.gov.

According to the American Society of Safety Engineers, return-to-work programs can help companies:

  • Improve compliance.
  • Accelerate worker recovery.
  • Maintain an experienced workforce.
  • Maintain production, workflow, and quality.
  • Improve morale and self-esteem.
  • Reduce hiring and training costs, and use of unnecessary medical treatments.
