The most effective way to reduce workers' compensation costs is to prevent the occurrence of workplace injuries and illnesses. In the event an injury is not prevented, it has been shown that keeping the individual as active as possible prevents further deterioration of their productivity. The development of the JHHSC/JHH Transitional Duty Pool helps to increase productivity and also reduce our workers’ compensation expenses.
Safe and meaningful work can be provided to employees recovering from a work-related injury. Offering transitional duty to injured employees will not only keep the employee productive and working in some capacity, but will also keep up their morale and self-esteem.
The home unit should ideally accommodate the JHHSC/JHH employee who has been injured on the job and has been cleared to return to work with restrictions that are expected to be short-term in nature (days or weeks). If this is not possible, the employee will be referred by the Occupational Injury Clinic to the Disability Case Manager for temporary assignment in the Transitional Duty Pool.
If the employee is not accommodated in the home department, the department providing the temporary assignment will not be charged for the employee's salary and the employee's home department will be charged 50% of the salary and the Workers' Compensation Fund will pay the other half of the salary.
