L&I’s RTW Program

Medical restrictions may prevent you from returning an injured worker immediately back to their regular job. However, it is possible to return to your injured worker to work in a different, light duty capacity until they are able to return to full capacity.

We will help you create a return-to-work program, identify opportunities to offer light duty work, and develop modified job descriptions to meet medical restrictions for each claim.

L&I also offers a financial incentive for reimbursement of a portion of the modified duty expenses. You may be eligible for reimbursement of a portion of base wages and expenses such as training and tools related to light duty work.
