Returning to Work after an Illness or Injury

The U.S. Department of Labor created a new toolkit that helps employers and employees understand the return-to-work process. It provides resources to help get employees who experience an illness or injury back on the job quickly and smoothly. The employee toolkit includes information about job accommodations, preparing for a job interview, resume writing, self-employment and employment-related laws. The employer toolkit has information about strategies such as offering the opportunity to work part-time, telecommuting, modifying work duties or schedules, as well as resources that can help employers retain the talents of older workers.  

To access the toolkit, simply visit the following link:
