Modified Duty Offsite
The longer an employee is away from work, the less likely they are to return to productive employment.
TRIUNE Health Group's Modified Duty Off-Site program provides options to employers who are unable to accommodate their injured workers’ temporary work restrictions. Statistics show that the longer an employee is away from work, the more chances of returning to productive employment diminish. TRIUNE will work in conjunction with the employer, injured worker and a local non-profit agency to facilitate a speedy and safe gradual release so they can return to their original position.
How the MDOS Program Works
We will find a position at a non-profit agency that is within the injured workers’ job restrictions. We customize the paperwork and offer letter for your company to comply with your companies policy and procedures. We will perform ongoing weekly telephonic follow-up with the injured worker and non-profit supervisor to discuss any concerns with restrictions and performance.
Advantages of the MDOS Program
Employers can reduce their workers’ compensation costs by returning their injured workers back to work as soon as they are released to modified or light duty. In turn, this will terminate temporary total disability benefits and limit lost time exposure if the employer agrees to continue the employee on their payroll while they are volunteering. Keeping an employee at some type of work is therapeutic and promotes healing and recovery. It also improves employee morale and may prevent them from obtaining an attorney.
The employer may receive receives tax advantages for having employee placed with a non-profit organization.
